Parties Extra!---University of Oklahoma's Louise B. Moore Learning Center dedicated
Lou Moore Hale, Stillwater, created a special bronze sculpture honoring her mother, the late Louise Beard Moore, who was faculty adviser to the University of Oklahoma Daily, 1952-1974. A dedication ceremony and reception was held recently which included former students, friends and Moore family members.
The sculpture is in the Louise B. Moore Learning Center in OU’s Gaylord College of Journalism and Mass Communication where a variety of classes in ad copy and layout, photography and Afghan 101 are held.
Members of the fund-raising committee and OU alumni members Carol Burr, Linda Johnson and Barbara Sessions talked about the impact that the popular adviser had on their lives as students. Gaylord College Dean Dr. Joe Foote also gave remarks.
Sessions noted that when Moore was faculty adviser she was a major “advocate for students.” “She had a deep influence on our careers as professional journalists,” she added. Hale noted that her mother red- penciled and edited and sent back her children’s and grandchildren’s thank you notes that had errors. “She was always upholding the standard of the profession,” she added.
