    Greetings, my company is working on a documentary project about your SMU 1949 alumnus AARON SPELLING, the TV producer.

    I would consider it a great honor if anyone with any memories of Mr. Spelling and of SMU in the late-1940s and early-1950s might please contact me at – jon@motionpictureprod.com

    Thank you all very kindly! Jon Walz
