Richard A. (Rick) Hawley began teaching at University School (US) in the Cleveland, Ohio area in 1968. Educated at Middlebury College, Cambridge University, and Case Western Reserve University, where he completed a Ph.D. in political philosophy, he went on to chair US's social science department, to direct the guidance program as dean of students, and to serve as director of the Upper School before being named headmaster in 1988. He has taught courses in history, government, economics, and philosophy, coached baseball, tennis, and basketball, and served as advisor to the student newspaper and literary magazine.

Dr. Hawley has a national reputation both as educator and as author. With consistent freshness and enthusiasm, he has lectured and spoken extensively on child development and topical social issues. He is one of the founders and past president of Boys' Schools, an international association of schools and individuals dedicated to the education of boys in schools designed specifically for them.

He has written more than a dozen works of fiction, non-fiction, and poetry, including the novel The Headmaster's Papers, which won several literary prizes, including a Bread Loaf Writers Conference Fellowship for First Fiction, and remains standard fare in the private school world. His non-fiction works include The Purposes of Pleasure, Seeing Things, The Big Issues in the Adolescent Journey, and Boys Will Be Men. His published poetry collections include With Love to My Survivors and St. Julian. His most recent book prior to Paul & Juliana, The Headmaster's Wife, was published in 2000.
