Edwin DeWindt makes farewell appearance on ‘Ask the Professor’

Professor of History Edwin DeWindt, a distinguished member of the faculty since 1968, will be retiring at the end of the academic year. He reprised his role of emcee of the “Ask the Professor” (ATP) radio program on April 11. DeWindt's dulcet bass voice announced each ATP show with the ringing of the University Tower chimes from 1974 through 1999. “Ask the Professor” has been produced at the University since 1952 and claims the title of America's longest running English-language syndicated radio show. You can hear podcasts of the quirky quiz show, now hosted by UDM's Department of Communication Studies.
