Biographical Note/Historical Note +/-

Born in Plain City, Jean Anne moved with her parents to Ogden, where she grew up. She attended Ogden High School and Weber College where she edited the college newspaper, The Signpost. She continued her education at BYU, graduating with a BA in English in 1945. It was a matter of pride with her that she was immediately hired as a faculty member by Parley A. Christensen, chairman of the English Department, whose formal manner of teaching she adopted, always addressing her students by their last names. Granted a sabbatical leave in1955, she took a master's degree from the University of Southern California. Returning to BYU, she rose to the rank of full professor before retiring in 1989. She had a special interest in drama, particularly that of Eugene O'Neill, on whom she wrote her master's thesis. She was a skilled teacher of both literature and writing classes, as generations of former students will attest. - See more at: http://www.myers-mortuary.com/obituary/Jean-Anne-Waterstradt/Ogden-UT/1003537#sthash.t2OxTXYf.dpuf

Born in Plain City on June 8, 1924, Jean Anne moved with her parents to Ogden, where she grew up. She attended Ogden High School and Weber College where she edited the college newspaper, The Signpost, as the first female editor. She gradauted with an associate's degree in 1943. She continued her education at BYU, graduating with a BA in English in 1945. It was a matter of pride with her that she was immediately hired as a faculty member by Parley A. Christensen, chairman of the English Department, whose formal manner of teaching she adopted, always addressing her students by their last names. Granted a sabbatical leave in 1955, she received a master's degree from the University of Southern California. Returning to BYU, she rose to the rank of full professor before retiring in 1989. She had a special interest in drama, particularly that of Eugene O'Neill, on whom she wrote her master's thesis. She was a skilled teacher of both literature and writing classes, as generations of former students will attest.

After retiring, Waterstradt returned to her hometown of Ogden, where she became active in the WSU Emeriti Alumni Council and served on the Ogden-Weber County Humane Society Board of Directors. Regarding the library as the “heart of the university,” she has been a fervent promoter and supporter of WSU’s Stewart Library, serving for many years on the Friends of the Stewart Library Board of Directors. Waterstradt established a collection of literature and criticism in the library in memory of her parents that expanded the offerings available to student and faculty researchers. She established scholarships for female students in the College of Health Professions in memory of her deceased sister-in-law Charlotte. It was her preference that these scholarships go to single mothers or to older women who are returning to college. Jean Anne was also a co-sponsor of the Celebrate Shakespeare program which brings a Shakespeare play to Ogden High School each year. She passed away December 10, 2011.
