FHSU professor presents 'Morbid Meditations' at Bijou while Frankenstein relocates to campus library
10/14/2003

Dr. Robert Luehrs, professor of history and director of the supernatural studies program at Fort Hays State University, will present his annual Halloween talk at 7 p.m. Oct. 28 at the Bijou.

"Morbid Meditations Upon Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" will be this year's talk.

The activity is open to the public and will include refreshments.

Luehrs' presentation is sponsored by Phi Alpha Theta.

In conjunction with the fright-fest of campus Halloween activities, an homage to Frankenstein will be on display in Forsyth Library on the FHSU campus.

The exhibit was created by Luehrs and Christine Luehrs, instructor of English. The Departments of History and English are co-sponsoring the exhibit.

The creators also gave credit to the Chemistry Department after they "borrowed arcane paraphernalia from them," and to "Dr. Caligari's Carnival of Shadows, a Halloween festival which manifested itself at FHSU during the late 1970s and early 1980s."

The exhibit will only be open until Oct. 31, after which it will mysteriously vanish.
