Profile image for Dan McGovern

My scholarship centers on Eugene O’Neill, the only American playwright to win the Nobel Prize for Literature, as well as the only one to win as many as four Pulitzer Prizes. I am the Co-President of the Eugene O’Neill Foundation, Tao House, and I am the Co-Chair of the Eugene O’Neill International Festival of Theatre in New Ross, Ireland. I also publish frequently in “The Eugene O’Neill Review,” published by Pennsylvania State University Press.

I am not a professional academic, although I am a Visiting Scholar in the Department of Theatre, Dance & Performance Studies at the University of California, Berkeley.

Retired now, I served in three Presidential administrations as the second-ranking attorney at the United States Department of State, the general counsel of the National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and the head of the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). I was also the general counsel of the California Department of Transportation.

The University of Oklahoma Press published my book, “The Campo Indian Landfill War: The Fight for Gold in California’s Garbage.” It was a “Choice” Outstanding Academic Book.
