In Memoriam

Frank Moffett Mosier (May 15, 1929 – June 13, 2014)

Frank Mosier was active in the arts and education for all of his life, graduating from William Jewell College and earning an MFA in playwriting from the State University of Iowa. He was a past member of the Actors’ Studio Playwrights’ group and a continuing alumni member of the New Dramatists. He was associated with The Actor’s Place at St. Luke’s, New York City, for six years; as managing director of that group in 1972, he served on the original board of directors of the Off-Off-Broadway Alliance. Concurrently, for 15 years he was associated with Quintano’s School for Young Professionals in New York City, as head of the English department and assistant principal.

In 1989 he was instrumental in founding the Lively Arts Foundation and its resident Central California Ballet company along with his wife, Diane. Frank was notable for his outstanding mentorship of young people pursuing lives in the arts. Continuing his legacy of robust advocacy of the performing arts, Synecdoche Works is proud to offer his eponymous fellowship.
