This collection documents the intellectual pursuits of independent literary scholar Robert Prager. Included in the collection is correspondence and interviews with gay male writers. Also included is biographical research, including interviews and correspondence, into the life of artist Chuck Arnett.
Background
Robert Prager was born on May 16, 1955. Although Prager claims that his "education has largely been a matter of self-education," he attended Cass Technical High School in downtown Detroit, Michigan from 1970 until 1973. He then attended nearby Wayne State University from 1973 until 1975 with a declared major in Journalism. After dropping out of Wayne State University, Prager worked in various surveying, construction, and road-building jobs. He returned to Wayne State University as a student in 1979 and graduated a year later Phi Beta Kappa in 1980 with a B.A. in English.
