Mother Goose and Grimm creator and Pulitzer Prize winning editorial cartoonist Mike Peters will be the 2012 commencement address at Washington University in St. Louis in May. Mike graduated from the university in 1965 with a bachelor of fine arts degree.
“It is a great honor to have one of our most distinguished graduates serve as our 2012 Commencement speaker,” Wrighton says. “I have known Mike Peters for many years and have come to appreciate how his time as an undergraduate at Washington University shaped his very impressive career. I know it will be special for him to return to his alma mater to address this year’s graduates.”
Through the years Mike has been back to the University several times to offer lectures, reunions and exhibits.
