In honor of artist, educator and WHQR commentator's Claude Howell's 100th Birthday we have been saluting him with clips from his commentaries. Check out this rather thrilling commentary, in which he describes his arrest in Paris.
Artist, educator and WHQR commentator Claude Howell was born 100 years ago this week. Howell played key roles in establishing UNCWilmington's art department and the Cameron Art Museum, where a celebration of his life is scheduled tomorrow night at 7 PM. We've been celebrating with some of Claude's WHQR Commentaries this week on Morning Edition and All Things Considered.

From an early age, Howell expressed a deep love for his hometown, drawing and painting people and scenes from town to coast. Howell also recorded several stories at WHQR about his days as a Wilmington youth.
