Town and Gown

Our first time back to an in-person event will be seared in our minds forever. I am so pleased my first 2021 event was an SMU Town and Gown talk and dinner with the added pleasure of it being held at the Dallas Arboretum's A Tasteful Place, the fabulous modern glass pavilion designed by architect Russell Buchanan that overlooks the edible gardens and White Rock Lake. Town and Gown, I believe, is the only club that I have been a member of. The idea of brilliant professors and deans on the gown side alternating talks with brilliant members of the Dallas community on the town side was an appealing concept. I was thrilled to be voted in as a member. At the turn of the 21st century, I was president of Town and Gown and I have continued to enjoy the inspirational and collegial exchange of ideas since. This recent Monday evening, Allan McBee moderated a provocative conversation, “US-China Relationship-Economic and Security Discussions,” with Jay T. Young and Patrick Jenevein. Both of these speakers have had extensive personal involvement with China and these thorny issues. At dinner, sitting next to the great artist and intellectual Mary Vernon added to the joy of being back to seeing people. *Town and Gown
