Lord Clark-man and his art British born Kenneth Clark, author and narrator of the widely acclaimed Civilisation film series has been called Great Britain's minister of culture. Clark has been the holder of many 'important positions in the arts and cultural life of Great Britain. He was educated at Winchester and Trinity College, Oxford. At the age of 31 Clark became the youngest man ever to hold the position of director of the National Gallery in London. He was also Surveyor of The King's Pictures and, during the war years, he was head of films for the Ministry of Information and later head of films and broadcasts. Clark returned to Oxford at the end of the war and took up the position of Slade Professor of Fine Arts. Clark became involved in television productions in 1954 when he wrote, directed and appeared in a series of television programs on art. In 1967 Clark conducted a tour of British royal palaces for American television. Although Clark has gained considerable fame from his work in television production, he prefers to think of himself primarily as a writer and critic, and deservedly so as he has published 16 works on art. Included among those works he has published are: Landscape into Art, Leonardo da Vinci, Piero della Francesca, The Nude, Ruskin, Rembrandt and The Italian Renaissance. In 1938 Clark was knighted Lord Clark of Saltwood, and he has recently been given a life peerage. With four new books being prepared for publication and two new television series in the making, Clark is an extremely busy man. His lectures at Yale, at the National Gallery and at New York University have won him a sizeable American following, but his greatest popular and critical success is the Civilisation series. jT i , c ' - i " ' - 1 . - ! - .-'' . -5 In its totality Civilisation comprises an inspired motion picture history of things, an extraordinary collection of paintings, sculpture, buildings, places and people and things that have shaped Western man. "Civilisation is a mind-expander.

|Description||Weber's current student newspaper, the Signpost, first appeared on September 29, 1937. For two years prior to that time, campus news was disseminated via announcements posted on a bulletin board known as the "Signpost". As a result, the masthead of the first issue of the paper itself featured a rudimentary wooden sign with the title spelled out in rustic-looking letters. Over the years the paper has been published continuously, though the look, size and style has changed several times.|
