Born in Connecticut in 1928, most
of Hall's life has been studded with
Hall attended Harvard University
as an undergraduate, where he came
in contact with such future legends
as Frank O'Hara, Kenneth Koch
and John Ashbery.
Hall was a professor at the Univer-
sity from 1957 to 1975, where he met
his wife of 23 years, Jane Kenyon.
He is the author of 15 books of
poetry, 14 books of prose and numer-
ous children's books.
These accomplishments have solid-
ified Hall's position as a heavyweight
in American literature.
The University's Department of
Screen Arts and Cultures honored
Hall with the creation of the Don-
ald Hall Screenwriting Collection,
consisting of more than 2,000 DVDs
and a significant screenplay library.
Hall was also the founding edi-
tor of the University Press's "Poets
on Poetry," an ongoing collection of
articles, commentary and interviews
that facilitate a dialogue on poetry.

In 1989, Hall was diagnosed
with colon cancer at the age of 61.
Despite surgery, the cancer spread
to his liver.
In the face of very low chances
of survival, Hall lived to see the
cancer go into remission. But in
1994, his wife Kenyon developed
leukemia. She passed away 15
But through personal struggle
and tragedy, Hall has resolutely kept
to his writing.
"Without," published in 1998,
brings these events to an emotive
"Her Long Illness" presents Hall's
last days with Kenyon in an abrupt,
honest approach, robbing the reader
of breath and senses.
Hall's early poetry is marked by a
sophistication that moves fluidly from
academic satire to honest commentary.
Comfortable using traditional
forms of verse as well as a more open
approach, Hall's poetry remains
accessible on many levels.
His long-lasting dedication to
the world of poetry only builds the
anticipation of his upcoming tenure.

Music school renamed
School of Music's
125th year will see
an expansion of its
name and structure
By Katie L. Woods
For the Daily
After more than a century of oper-
ation, the School of Music has taken
on a new name to better reflect the
full scope of its programs.
The school officially changed its
name Saturday to the School of Music,
Theater and Dance.
Dance and theater have been part of
the school for years - dance was incor-
porated in 1976, and a theater program
was later added in 1984 - but many felt
it was now time to incorporate both pro-
grams into the school's name.

The ruling's effects depend on
how willing the executive branch
will be to refer to the Supreme
Court's interpretation of the consti-
tution, Caminker said.
"I am pleased that the Supreme
Court finally issued a ruling that
embraced what I think are the cor-
rect principles of the separation of
powers," Caminker said.
Caminker said he thinks both
Democratic and Republican presi-
dents have been growing more
aggressive in terms of the power
they think is uniquely theirs.
The ruling united the four most liberal
justices with moderate Anthony M. Ken-
nedy in an opinion that showed the high
court would not watch the controversy
over the Bush administration's policies
from the sidelines.
It was a sequel to a ruling two years
ago that found the administration did
not have a "blank check" to lock up
alleged combatants without any legal
rights. Again, the court said the Bush
administration had gone too far.
"The Constitution is best pre-
served by reliance on standards test-
ed over time and insulated from the
pressures of the moment," Kennedy
wrote in one opinion.
The ruling came on the court's final
day before the justices began a three-
month break. Court members spent
more than half an hour announcing the
decision and reading dissents.
Chief Justice John Roberts was side-
lined in the case because as an appeals
court judge he had backed the govern-
ment in this case last year. That ruling
was overturned Thursday.
The other three conservative jus-
tices, Antonin Scalia, Clarence
Thomas and Samuel Alito, strongly
supported the government.
"It is not clear where the court derives
the authority - or the audacity - to
contradict" Congress and the executive
branch, Scalia wrote.
Thomas, reading a dissent from the
bench foronly the second time in his career,
said the court's decision would "sorely
hamper the president's ability to confront
and defeat a new and deadly enemy"
"The end of the 2005-2006 year
marked the 125th anniversary of the
establishment of the school, and we
felt that because it was a big mile-
stone, now would be a good time
to change our name to reflect more
of what we do," said Carrie Throm,
director of development and external
relations for the school.
Throm said the new name more accu-
rately describes the school to the public.
"We felt that it was important to
include (theater and dance) because
those parts of our school have
become very popular and respected
The school's offices have received
positive feedback from students, fac-
ulty and the community, Throm said.
"This recognition creates a family
of the performing arts. Everyone is
happy with the change," said Greg-
ory Poggi, chair of the theater and

The school has undergone several
name changes in its 125-year history.
The last adjustment was made
in 1940, 11 years after the school
joined the University.
The costs in changing the school's
title are estimated to be modest,
