Since 1888, scholars have been wrestling with the Shakespeare authorship 
mystery. Hollywood has just this year weighed in with its version in the 
movie /Anonymous. /Kreeger Museum founder David Kreeger's lifelong 
passion for Shakespeare turned him into a modern sleuth when he joined 
the search for the truth about the author of the greatest plays in the 
English language. He financed the September 1987 appellate court session 
which was heard by Supreme Court Justices Brennan, Blackmun and Stevens 
and attended by over a thousand people -- trying to weigh the cases of 
the two strongest claimants, the Stratfordians vs. the Oxfordians.In 
writing a forward for the record of the "Authorship of Shakespeare on 
Trial," Kreeger expressed the hope that "the passage of the centuries 
should not deter further research." Just over 24 years have passed since 
then, and the museum that bears his name and exhibits his art collection 
will host, on January 19th, a revisiting of the case.

This program -- titled /The Mystery of Shakespeare -- /is open to the 
public, and will take place, 6:30-8 p.m. on Thursday, January 19, in the 
Great Hall of The Kreeger Museum.

The format will be that of a dialogue between Peter and Syril Kline who, 
as scholars, have been pursuing the arguments in the authorship debate 
for many years and are now prepared to present information they have 
uncovered regarding mistakes that were made by earlier researchers. They 
are hoping that the audience/witnesses will engage in this lively 
dialogue -- with them and each other. A complete set of the records from 
the September 25, 1987 moot court event and will also be on exhibit that 
evening. A light English pub style reception will follow in the Monet 
Gallery of the museum.

We hope you will be able to attend this event and share this information 
with your students and colleagues!
