Winter Chautauqua to feature golden age of Hollywood

January 12, 2012

 Winter Chautauqua
Debra Conner as Margaret Mitchell

A one-hour humanities credit is being offered at Northwestern Oklahoma State University as part of the Winter Chautauqua on Saturday, Jan. 21, at the Enid campus. By enrolling in HUM 4480, Margaret Mitchell, individuals can learn about the life of Mitchell as told by Debra Conner.

As part of a Chautauqua series that begun last summer, Mitchell’s story is about the golden age of Hollywood.
The Winter Chautauqua incorporates a unique learning format with workshops and a performance by a scholar.

Workshops start at 10:30 a.m. with “Please, do you have any news?” At noon, “Movie Madness” begins, and at 7 p.m. there is a performance by Conner.

This yearly tradition, sponsored by Northwestern-Enid, the Oklahoma Humanities Council (OHC), Enid Convention and Visitors Bureau and the Greater Enid Arts and Humanities Council, is free and open to the public (unless enrolling for college credit).

Interested persons who wish to receive college credit should contact Dr. Wayne McMillin, Northwestern-Enid dean, at (580) 213-3116 or

McMillin encourages the public to be a part of this fun, casual and relaxed day.
