Short biography
Hardin Craig was born June 29, 1875, in Owensboro, Kentucky. He was married to Gertrude Carr. Mr. Craig earned his A.B. from Centre College in Kentucky in 1897. He took his M.A. and Ph.D. from Princeton University in 1899 and 1901. In 1897, he served as principal for one year at Stanford Academy in Kentucky, then studied at Oxford from 1901 to 1903. From 1903 to 1905 he was an instructor in English at Princeton, and continued at Princeton as an Edgerstoune School preceptor (tutor) from 1905 to 1910. In May 1910 he left Princeton for the University of Minnesota, where he was professor of English until 1919. He was on military leave from the University of Minnesota for two years to serve in the Army.

In April 1919 Dr. Craig joined the English Department faculty at the University of Iowa, and was made head of the department the following year. At the University of Iowa, he taught courses in Shakespeare, Sixteenth Century Literature, and Liturgical Sources of Middle English Literature. In 1928 Dr. Craig left Iowa to teach at Stanford University. In March 1942 he resigned from Stanford to teach at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
