Subject: Two Positions Hiring in Ashland, home of the Oregon Shakespeare 
Festival

Greetings Fellow SHAKSPEReans,

If you could help us get word out regarding these two separate position 
we are hiring (each position to be hired either at the rank of Assistant 
or Associate Professor) we would be very grateful. Ashland is a terrific 
place to live and work, and of course, home to the Oregon Shakespeare 
Festival, about to open its 75th Anniversary Season.

Thanks, and all best regards,
Don Weingust
