'President Waldo' schedules campus appearance

Nov. 12, 2003

KALAMAZOO--Anyone interested in learning more about Western Michigan University's first president is invited to attend "Dwight B. Waldo Speaks" at 3 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 20, in the lounge of the Lee Honors College.

The free program is a living history presentation that David Isaacson, humanities librarian for the University's Waldo Library, developed in honor of WMU's ongoing centennial celebration.

For the entertaining and informative dramatization, Isaacson dons period attire and assumes the persona of Waldo. He brings the University's most venerated administrator to life through techniques such as monologues and storytelling, allowing audiences to gain a better understanding of the real Dwight Waldo.

Isaacson presents the program on and off campus as time permits. For more information or to schedule a performance, he may be contacted at (269) 387-5182 or <david.isaacson@wmich.edu>.
