Southwestern Fondly Remembers TV Host and BW Enthusiast Huell Howser
The Southwestern community will greatly miss our good friend Huell Howser who passed away earlier this month. Huell was a Bullocks Wilshire enthusiast who featured the landmark in several hour-long episodes of his popular program Visiting with Huell Howser on KCET. These focused on the closing of the store and Tea Room, then the restoration and adaptation of one-third of the building to accommodate Southwestern's Law Library, and finally the reopening of the Tea Room to serve Southwestern students, faculty and visitors, with a few updates as recently as December 2011. In October 2004, he served as Master of Ceremonies for Southwestern's Gala Celebration to mark the dedication of Southwestern's Dixon Courtroom and Advocacy Center and the completion of the transformation of the Bullocks Wilshire Building.
