William Eddelman is an Associate Professor Emeritus in Theatre History and Design in the Stanford University Department of Theatre and Performance Studies. At Stanford he combined both the creative and academic worlds in undergraduate and graduate classes. His course offerings and theatrical interpretations were extremely varied, diverse, and interdisciplinary, moving from theatre and cultural history to contemporary design aesthetics and dramatic literature. He has taught at Stanford in Berlin, and has led tours in Italy for Stanford Alumni Travel. As an expert in international theatrical design with a focus on Europe, he is currently creating an international theatrical design research collection and library for the Achenbach Graphic Arts Council of the San Francisco Fine Arts Museums.
