Sculpture Dedication April 11 At TWU


DENTON — Former students of a respected Texas Woman's University teacher will gather April 11 to dedicate a sculpture in her memory. The dedication will be at 2:30 p.m. on the lawn south of the TWU Institutional Development Building, located off Bell Avenue.

"She Gave Us Wings" is a gift from the Academic Alumni Chapter of Kinesiology in memory of Dr. Anne Schley Duggan, teacher and administrator of programs in health, physical education, recreation and dance at TWU from 1939 to 1973. TWU Distinguished Alumna Rosanne Keller created the bronze.

"Dr. Duggan was a woman before her time — a real titan," said Mary Ella Montague, chair of the kinesiology alumni chapter. "She put women's issues to the forefront. She gave us a feeling there was no ceiling. That makes her worthy of being remembered."

Dr. Duggan wrote numerous books and articles on dance and other aspects of health, physical education and recreation. She contributed in large measure to the establishment of modern dance as a vital art in the Southwest.

Before coming to TWU, Dr. Duggan taught at Columbia University in New York. While at TWU, she became the dean of the College of Health, Physical Education and Recreation.

Keller's work is on display throughout the United States and United Kingdom at universities, in churches and cathedrals and in private collections. In 1993, she was commissioned to create an 11-inch Buddha and eight ritual vessels for the private meditation room of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. A bronze she created titled "Reunion" was given by the Class of 1959 to the TWU Former Students Association and is on display Alumni House.

The dedication ceremony is part of homecoming activities at TWU which begin April 9 and conclude April 13.
