Biography

John Frederick Povey was born April 5, 1929 in South London. Povey was educated at St. Dunstan's College in London during the Blitz. After World War II, Povey was employed in a gold mine in South Africa under a plan that allowed him to study at the University of South Africa in Pretoria, where he completed a B.A. in English (1956) and an M.A. in Teaching English as a Second Language (1960). In the United States, Povey completed his Ph.D. in Third World Literature in English at Michigan State University (1964), after which he joined the faculty at UCLA. His areas of research included South African and Nigerian literature, comparative world literature, language planning and policy, ESL/TESL, and investigating symbols and rituals in African art. John Povey's career at UCLA was distinguished. He was director of the African Humanities Institute, chair of the ESL Section of the English Department, chair of the Africa Committee of the UC Education Abroad Program, Associate Director of the African Studies Center, and Project Director for numerous in-service teacher training programs in the United States and Africa. He authored eight books and texts, 20 chapters for edited volumes, and more than 100 reviews and articles on African literature, art, and culture. His field research took him to Nigeria, Ghana, Senegal, Kenya, South Africa, Rwanda, Zaire, Cameroon, Zimbabwe, Somalia, Togo, and Liberia. One of his most signifigant acomplishments at UCLA was his notable editorship of African Arts, in which he served from Fall 1967 until his retirement in 1991. His tireless efforts to have all forms of African art included in the major canon of art history promoted the work of talented African artists globally. He died of cancer on May 3, 1992.
