Biographical history

Robert Clayton Casto (b. 31 May 1932, d. 5 April 1998), English professor and writer, was born in Cleveland, Ohio. He received his B.A. from Yale University in 1954 and completed his M.A. and M.F.A. at the University of Iowa in 1965 and 1966 respectively before finishing his M.Litt. at Oxford in 1968. He was Assistant Professor of English at State University College, Oneonta, New York from 1968-1970. He held a similar position at York University from 1970 to 1974, and from 1974 until his death was Assistant Professor of English. In addition to his academic work, Casto also published several volumes of poetry including A Strange and Fitful Land (1959), The Arrivals (1980) and Human Gardens (ca. 1998) and had individual poems appear in numerous journals, reviews and magazines.
