A memorial for Communications Studies Professor Dick Doetkott has been scheduled for 2 p.m. Saturday, March 3, in Memorial Hall.

Doetkott passed away in December. Professor Doetkott joined Chapman in 1964 and among his many contributions was the creation of the Department of Communication Studies, which he and Richard Watson formed in 1972. Professor Doetkott was well-known for his trademark “Mickey salute,” an affectionate greeting shared and beloved by generations of students who took his Communications 101 class. In his honor all attending the March 3 memorial are encouraged to wear something with Mickey Mouse on it.
