September 22: SMU Provost Steven Currall

SMU’s new provost has been on the job for nine months, so he’s had time to get the lay of the land and do some strategic planning. The Faculty Club has asked Dr. Currall to talk about his major goals and how they will help the university progress over the next few years.

October 18: King of Diamonds—A Dallas Mystery

Everybody loves a good mystery story, and SMU’s own Rena Pederson has been working on a good one. It’s about a local jewel thief nicknamed The King of Diamonds, who crept into North Dallas and Park Cities homes and stole more than $1 million in jewelry from 1956 to 1970. The thief was never caught, never identified. Maybe Rena has solved the mystery. Come and find out. Lunch: $12 for member, $20 for non-members.
