Dr Donald Ellis projects plans for travel in England

Dr Donald Ellis, emeritus associate professor, reports that he survived the recent siege of winter weather in Oklahoma City. (The photo shows how things looked.)

He also reports that he and Caroline Getaz (Ph.D., history, 2003) will be leaving soon for London, where they will be spending about a month doing museums, concerts, and (perhaps) archives. They have already booked a concert by the Amsterdam Concertgebouw Orchestra and another by the London Baroque Ensemble. The latter is coupled with a lecture on Hogarth by the curator of the exhibition on Hogarth at the Tate Museum.

After spending some time at Hinton St. George in Somerset to visit Caroline's brother Clive, they will visit a friend who owns a 17th-century house in the Cotswolds. Finally, returning to London for a final week, they will leave for the U..S. during the first week in April.

The possible archive work will involve research into the wartime service of Caroline's father, who served in the Royal Air Force during World War II.

Dr Ellis says they will have a laptop computer with them during their travels and invite e-mail sent to
