I had some great teachers and, regrettably, several of them have passed away. Dan Wingren was fabulous in his knowledge of art and art history, and Dr. Karl Kilinski was tops in his field of Greco-Roman art history. I was lucky to have taken one of his tours to Greece in 1976. Too bad these two are gone. They got me hooked on art history. Dr. Anna Marie Carr was another facet to my education. But I owe a lot to Larry Scholder, who just retired, who best encouraged me to be a printmaker and guided me through the basics of etching. (I am still a printmaker, by the way.) I loved SMU and these teachers. It is very important to give positive as well as negative without stomping on a student’s ambitions.
