Dr. Harold Blackwell – Kinesiology Faculty, 1975-1990

Dr. Harold Blackwell
Health & Physical Education Faculty Member

            In July of 1975, shortly after recently completing my doctorate, I came to USL to interview for an assistant professor position in the HPER department. The first person I met was Al Simon, who was stepping down as department chair. Al introduced me to the new department chair, Dr. Ed Dugas. Ed took me to talk to Bud Ducharme, the interim dean. After that meeting, I was introduced to Dr. Ray Authement.

           Being from Mississippi and Tennessee, I was rather alarmed and totally confused by all the French names being thrown about that afternoon. Of course, you can imagine my surprise when I finally received my class rosters. However, I did begin to feel at home when I was assigned an office with Fred Nelson. That was a name I could understand.

            I remained at USL until 1990. I am presently Department Chair of the Health and Kinesiology Department at Lamar University in Beaumont, TX.
