On February 17, 2011, the McFarlin Fellows, in conjunction with Black History Month, welcome playwright David Feldshuh, Ph.D., M.D. Dr. Feldshuh is best known for his play Miss Evers’ Boys, which received the New American Play Award, was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize, and won five Emmy awards as an HBO movie. Feldshuh holds both a Ph.D. and M.D. from the University of Minnesota and is currently serving as Professor and Artistic Director of the Schwartz Center for the Performing Arts at Cornell University.
The McFarlin Fellows is the oldest currently active giving society affiliated with McFarlin Library. These individuals have generously chosen to support the growth of the library’s Department of Special Collections and University Archives with an annual commitment of $2,000, and in so doing highlight and encourage intellectual development in the Tulsa community. Gifts are used to fund acquisitions of rare books and manuscripts, while also funding an annual lecture series that features significant scholars and authors of the day. The McFarlin Fellows generally attend formal dinners with a speaker three times a year, and may also participate in other special events.
These events are not open to the public. For further information please see the Fellows’ web page.
