Clute to Give Last Lecture on April 28

Omaha - University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) Professor William Clute will give a “last lecture” Saturday, April 28, to mark his retirement from 39 years of full-time teaching.  He won’t be giving his lecture alone, though.

His presentation, “The Development of Entertainment During the First Half of the 20th Century: Vaudeville, Broadway, Radio, Movies and Television,” will include the use of his dummy, George Nichols.  Clute has been a ventriloquist for more than 50 years.

His lecture will focus on: an overview of his teaching objectives and methods; an illustration using his finale course on entertainment, which he is teaching this semester; Powerpoint presentations (on comedy, musicals, drama and westerns) by teams of students from his course; and a performance by Clute and George Nichols.

The presentation, which is free and open to the campus community and public, starts at 7:30 p.m. in the Eppley Administration Building auditorium. 

Seating is limited, and reservations can be made by contacting Clute at wclute@mail.unomaha.edu, (402) 554-2627 or the mailing address below.
