Media Matters

Dave Roth ’85, artist-lecturer in music (jazz piano), performed in Colorado last month and was previewed in the February 13 Greeley Tribune. The article mentions his Moravian degree, his Moravian job, and his work in the July Jazz Getaway and Moravian Summer Youth Jazz Camp.

Gary Olson, professor of political science, who has been recuperating from an unexpected heart attack, wrote movingly about this experience in “How I learned to listen to my heart’s warning signs,” an op-ed piece in the February 18 Morning Call. His photo was taken by his partner, Kathleen Kelly.

In the local section the same day was an article about the talk by Mary Frances Berry, chair of the U.S. Civil Rights Commission. Its headline was “Civil rights leader: States should decide gay issues,” which occupied maybe a sentence of what she really talked about. A letter writer a couple of days later took the reporter and headline writer to task.

Frank Crouch, professor of New Testament and dean of Moravian Theological Seminary, was one of two local religious leaders to be interviewed about Mel Gibson’s controversial film, The Passion of the Christ, in the February 26 Morning Call. Clarke Chapman, professor of religion, was the religious expert quoted by the Express-Times in a February 20 article about the many depictions of Jesus in film. Clarke teaches a course on religion and cinema.

Jessica Cain ’04, Bethlehem, majoring in management, was profiled in the Careers and Education supplement of the February 15 Morning Call.

The Sunday arts section of the Morning Call on February 22 had a full-page article on the work of Edgar Jerins, exhibited in Payne Gallery last month.
