of environmental factors focus of first Ford Lecture
A Rice University expert on U.S. Southern history will discuss
the role of impersonal and environmental factors in shaping the culture
of the South at the first Judge Leon Ford III Lecture in History Thursday,
John Boles, the William Pettus Hobby
Professor of History at Rice, will present two lectures as part of
Fanfare, Southeastern's annual fall festival of arts and humanities.
A 10 a.m. lecture in the Student Union
Theatre will feature a scholarly focus, while the 6:30 p.m. presentation

Ford and his family established Southeastern's second endowed chair,
the Leon Ford Family Endowed Chair in Regional Studies, a position
now held by history professor Samuel C. Hyde Jr. who directs the university's
Center for Southeast Louisiana Studies.
Boles' talks will focus on the influence
of global factors on the South, such as climate and geography as well
local environmental factors ranging from the honeybee and boll weevil
to the mosquito and cattle tick. "Human action always occurs
in an environmental context," Boles says. "It is important
in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina to consider the synergistic
relationship between nature and human history."
Boles is the author of the book A
Companion to the American South and editor of Shapers of American
History. He has lectured extensively on a wide variety of Southern
entertainers, two musicals headline Fanfare's third week

showmanship of Liberace, and the virtuoso sounds of a full symphony
orchestra." Fellow pianist Harry Connick Jr. said, "When
you look up 'piano' in the dictionary, you will see a picture of Ronnie
Kole. He's one of the great players of our time."
Kole has recorded at Carnegie Hall,
performed throughout the world solo and with trios, septets and orchestras,
and entertained millions of fans, including a pope and several presidents.

Reith, host of the Southeastern Channel's Backyard Wonders, sits on
a distressed cypress root along the shore of Lake Pontchartrain at
Fontainebleau State Park in Mandeville discussing the condition of
bald cypress trees on the north shore in an upcoming episode of the
show about native plant and animal life on the north shore.
Southeastern Channel special spotlights bald cypress
Despite the battering that Louisiana's natural forests took from
Hurricane Katrina, one tree that stood tall through it all was Louisiana's
state tree, the bald cypress.
From its durability, beauty and utilitarian
purposes to its ecological importance, the cypress species of south
Louisiana is examined in a new episode of Backyard Wonders,
first airing Oct. 18 at 8 p.m. on the Southeastern Channel, Southeastern's
educational cable access channel. Backyard Wonders spotlights
native plant and animal life in the Florida Parishes. It can also
be viewed on the Internet at www.selu.edu/tv.
The 30-minute special follows host Charles
Reith on journeys to national and state parks, swamps, wildlife refuges
and even north shore residences to explore the nature of the bald
cypress and how it fits into the region's ecosystem and horticultural
"Backyard Wonders is a series
that creates appreciation for indigenous natural wonders located right
here on the north shore -- in your own backyard, so to speak,"
said Rick Settoon, general manager of the Southeastern Channel and
the show's executive producer. "The show also informs viewers
about preserving the natural environment and ecosystem, beginning
in their own backyards.
"This episode helps viewers appreciate
what a precious natural resource we have in cypress trees, from their
purposes in natural habitat to uses in furniture-making, home-building
and landscape development," Settoon said.
The program was produced, videotaped
and edited by Southeastern Channel staff member Josh Kapusinski.
"We went to great lengths and many
locations to illustrate how beautiful and viable a healthy cypress
ecosystem can be to the entire state of Louisiana, both economically
and ecologically," Kapusinski said. "It's important for
people to know this story and learn how much impact cypress has and
can have in forests, along the coastline, for habitat and in backyards
Reith, who has lectured on environmental
management at Southeastern and other universities, travels to Fontainebleau
State Park in Mandeville to observe the condition of distressed cypress
groves and how the bald cypress withstood recent hurricanes.
He discusses the virtues of working
with cypress wood with furniture maker Terry Wilde of Ponchatoula
and cypress craftsman Paul LaPlace of New Orleans, who builds durable
homes from old cypress.
The host visits the Jean Lafitte National
Historical Park in Marrero to examine a healthy cypress forest and
its attributes before moving to the Cat Island National Wildlife Refuge
in St. Francisville to look at the largest cypress tree in the world
and the forest's overall depletion caused by the logging industry.
Reith then travels to a cypress restoration
project site at Lake Maurepas to interview Southeastern biology professor
Gary Shaffer about his federally-funded project to restore the wetlands
Finally, Reith shows how cypress can
help one's backyard landscape when he tours the Folsom residence of
French singer-guitarist Eric Vincent to perform
