Dougan publishes article in Arkansas Times
Dr. Michael Dougan, History, recently published an article in Arkansas Times titled "An Arkansas aria." The article is an account of Mary Lewis, an unhappy Little Rock housewife, who became an international opera star in the late 1920s and early 1930s. This fascinating account into the life of Mary Lewis is based on research that Dougan began more than 30 years ago after he found one of her recordings in a box of records he bought at an auction.

Let your light blaze for this generation and the ones to come. To join 321 of your colleagues who are Torchbearers, click here. Besides being a star, you can also be a winner in the drawing on Nov. 3 and win dinner for two at Upper Crust Pizza Company, a watch from Vetcare, or a $25 gift certificate from Golden Grotto.

Faculty may want to remind their students that the Career Services Center will host an all majors job fair and a graduate school exposition next Wednesday, Oct. 12, from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. in the Convocation Center. The “ASU All Majors Job Fair,” billed as the largest of its kind in the Mid-South, is free to students. Career Services also posts campus and off-campus job openings on its web site.  During the last fiscal year, the center posted 3,815 jobs and attracted 35,527 visitors, 918 of whom filed online applications.  These are great ways to help our students and graduates find the jobs for which we have prepared them.  For details about the Job Fair and Expo, see the NewsPage.
