ZIEGLER, Tom (19**- ). American academic and playwright.
A native Chicagoan and a product of Chicago’s famous Second City, Mr. Ziegler migrated to the warmer climate of western Virginia where he teaches playwrighting and scene design at Washington and Lee University in Lexington. Thirty years later he’s following his love for education and is glad he took what he calls the best advise he was ever given… "take the job". He claims, "that’s the main thing I do. I never say I’m a writer. I think of myself as a teacher who writes."
