Joseph Heller & his famous novel, "Catch-22," germinated during his faculty tenure at Penn State in the early 1950s. Pulitzer prize-winning poet Theodore Roethke wrote his first book, "Open House," during his seven years of teaching at the university. And after teaching here in the 1950s, novelist John Barth used the University Park campus setting for "Giles Goat Boy."
