Andrew Phelan, biographer and professor of art at the University of Oklahoma, is collecting memories of the late Leonard Good for an upcoming biography. Good, professor emeritus of art at Drake, chaired Drake's art department from 1952 to 1968.

He also was a lecturer on art histories, a reviewer of books for magazines and journals, an exhibitor in national competitions, a mural painter for public buildings and an illustrator for various publications. He last taught at the University of Oklahoma, where he worked with Phelan before dying of a heart ailment in 2000.

Phelan is interested in any and all aspects of Good's life, particularly his years at Drake. To contribute information to the biography, contact Phelan by phone at 405-325-1037, e-mail at alphelan@ou.edu, or by mail at 529 Parrington Oval, Room 202, Norman, OK, 70309.
