Transcript Dr. Peavy Has Rapport With UH Student Body To many young men youth is a handicap. To Dr. Charles Peavy it is an asset. His youth allows him a special rapport with UH students. Peavy's world is the college campus. He is often mistaken for a student and his wife is a Rice student working on her doctorate in English. When Peavy is not on campus he is only one block away on Varsity Lane where students cross his lawn on the way to campus. Born in Cuero, Texas in 1931, the associate professor of English still finds it "fantastic that people will pay me good money to do what I would do as a hobby anyways." He teaches contemporary literature year round at the University and is the author of numerous contributions to academic publications. He is particularly interested in Faulkner and has completed several studies on him. In the spring of 1967 he completed a book for the Southwest Writer Series on Charles A. Sit- ingo, the first cowboy autobiographer. He is a member of a half a dozen regional, national and international professional organizations and is president of the South Central College English Association. His involvement with what is happening on campus is an extension of things he likes to do. He is the originator of the UH foreign film series and has worked with students to extend library hours and to improve lighting on campus. He has also served on the Who's Who Selection Committee, the Lecture Artists Series Board and the President's Committee on Academic Honesty. He was adviser for the New Lantern Club poetry review and is faculty adviser to Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity. The soft-spoken, out-spoken man says he is always ready to serve on ad hoc committees when the need arises and that he likes to keep in touch with Student Association. "At other schools the student government is an ego extension, here at UH the Student Association is effective," he says. His involvement goes beyond the student level and he serves on the faculty Senate Elections Committee and the English Department's Library Committee. He is also an art consultant for the University Center. Peavy jokingly refers to himself as an "academic bum" during his own school days. He received his bachelor of arts and master's degree at LSU and also attended classes at Colorado and Virginia. He took his doctorate at Tulane in 1963 and came straight to the UH campus where it seems he has found a home. Dr. Peavy accentuates his lecture with emphatic hand gestures. Students find they can not help but share his enthusiasm for contemporary literature. 12
