In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

Homage to Gerald E. Wade It is indeed fitting that the Comediantes dedicate this number to one of its charter members, Gerald E. Wade, on the occasion of his 73rd birthday, and of his retirement from Vanderbilt University this past June. Back in 1943 when the Comediantes was being formed, Gerald was one of the guiding lights whose enthusiastic participation in the activities of the group served as a stimulating and unifying force that has left an indelible imprint on those who were to follow. After obtaining his doctorate at Ohio State University, Gerald Wade soon moved to Knoxville where he spent the greater part of his professional career at the University of Tennessee. Later he accepted a position at Vanderbilt University where he taught until his retirement in June, 1969. Dr. Wade has long been active in several professional organizations: MLA, AATSP, SAMLA and the Tennessee Philological Association. He has presided over some of the annual meetings of these associations and served as an officer including the presidency of the SAMLA and the T.P.A. Gerald Wade has played an important role in research and publication by serving as an Associate Editor of Hispania and the South Athntic Bulletin. Under his effective leadership as Editor of the Twayne Spanish series, nine volumes have already appeared and more are in the process of publication or preparation. Despite his intense dedication to scholarly pursuits, Gerald has somehow found time to publish several texts and various articles on pedagogy. Over the years Professor Wade has published more than 60 articles in leading journals in this country and abroad. His wide literary interests have lead him to the publication of studies in the Spanish and Latin American novel and in the modern Spanish theater. But his greatest and most abiding interest has been in the comedia and in the theater and life of Tirso de Molina. His latest achievement is his magnificent edition of Tirso's El burhdor de Sevilh, published in 1969 by Scribner's. A host of well-wishers and admirers offers him and his beloved wife Anna this toast of esteem and affection with all best wishes for health, peace and contentment in the retirement years.
