Dr Clifton W. Potter Jr. ~ UL History Professor
A friend of mine was the first person I knew who had the chance to study abroad. He was enrolled in a program sponsored by the University of Birmingham at Stratford upon Avon during the summer of 1960. The chance to study under Allardyce Nicoll, one of the recognized authorities on British drama, made the program particularly attractive. When he returned in September, I asked my friend about his experience. He enjoyed working with Dr. Nicoll, but he did not hesitate to tell everyone he knew that the course on Shakespeare taught by Dr. Dora Jean Ashe, was better than one he had just finished in England. Those of us who had taken one or more of her literature courses were not surprised. Dr. Ashe was the best of the best.
