The Z. Smith Reynolds Library proudly presents “A Conversation with Mr. Wake Forest: A Question & Answer Time with Provost Emeritus Ed Wilson”. It will take place on Thursday, September 24 at 4:00 p.m. in the Library Auditorium (Room 404) as part of the Library Lecture Series.
Known as “Mr. Wake Forest” to generations of students, faculty, staff, and alumni, Dr. Wilson will have an informal discussion where he will answer questions and share reflections. He graduated from Wake Forest in 1943, returned to teach English in 1951, and became the first Provost for the university in 1967. He has received numerous honors and accolades along the way; for example, the Wilson Wing of the Z. Smith Reynolds Library is named in his honor.
This event will be hosted by Tim Pyatt, Dean of the Z. Smith Reynolds Library.
Admission is free, and the doors will open at 3:30 p.m. A livestream of the event will be available through the Z. Smith Reynolds Library’s YouTube channel, and an overflow room will be set up in Room 204.
Join us and start your 2015 Homecoming weekend with one of Wake Forest’s legendary figures!
