'Fool's Enterprise: A Personal History by Center of the American West'

April 1, 6:30 p.m., Wittemyer Courtroom

The tradition of the fool has deep origins in human society. In the mid-1970s, Patty Nelson (soon to acquire the fortunately silly surname ‘Limerick”) undertook to revive the tradition, with higher education as its “kingdom.” In this illustrated talk, she will review nearly four decades of adventures and misadventures as a self-confessed, officially appointed, forthright fool. This lecture celebrates the Center of the American West’s new Humor Initiative. Reception to follow - Boettcher Hall
