Graham, John 1926-2007


See index for SATA sketch: Born September 1, 1926, in Washington, DC; died of extensive blood loss, July 16, 2007, in Charlottesville, VA. Educator and author. For more than thirty years Graham taught students at the University of Virginia about the world of literature. He specialized in the eighteenth century but taught a wide variety of classes, ranging from rhetoric to romanticism, speech to satire, and communications to children's literature. Before arriving at the university in 1958, he had taught at private schools in Maryland and New Hampshire and at Marquette University and Georgetown University, his alma mater. Generally reflecting his scholarly interests, Graham's writings included studies of iconic authors such as Ernest Hemingway and John Hawkes and works on the craft of writing. His hobbies, however, included children's literature, and he wrote two modestly successful children's books: A Crowd of Cows (1968) and I Love You, Mouse (1976).

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
