Spring 2007 - Episode 2 (Mar 30, 2007)
This week on Assignment: Radio, we present a series of one-on-one interviews with prominent and noteworthy members of the OU community. Morgan Fenn finds out how Shirley Danley turned her experience as a mother, and a professional seamstress, into a job as the house mother for the Gamma Phi Beta sorority. Jerry Wofford talks with an OU landscaper responsible for the beautiful flower arrangements that grace the campus's two ovals each spring, and we'll find out what else is in store for the rest of the planting season. Jarrel Wade heads over to the Bizzell Memorial Library to see Marilyn Ogilvie, curator of the History of Science collection. Dr. Ogilvie is in charge of overseeing and preserving these priceless antiquities, and has a strong passion for both rare books and women in science. And Brian Hardzinski sits down with OU professor of geopolitics Dr. Edward Perkins, who was instrumental in the struggle to end apartheid as the United States' first African-American ambassador to South Africa. Appointed by Ronald Reagan in 1986, Dr. Perkins was one of the world's most influential diplomats, whose career in the Foreign Service spanned more than 40 years.
