CANTON, Mo. — Dr. Michael Kramme of Washington was inducted into the Division of Fine Arts Hall of Fame during Culver-Stockton's 2012 Homecoming celebration. This was the inaugural kick-off for the Fine Arts Hall of Fame and seven alumni and professors were inducted this year.

Kramme is a professor emeritus at Culver-Stockton. He was professor of theatre at C-SC from 1984-2002. During his time at Culver-Stockton, he was the Division Chair of the Fine Arts, as well as the head of the Theatre Department. Kramme was instrumental in developing the Guest Artist Production at C-SC, which is still an annual tradition. Artists he brought to campus while he was at C-SC include Desi Arnaz Jr., Christopher Atkins and Dawn Wells.

Kramme is currently writing his third book on Iowa history topics. He also occasionally directs theater productions for his local community theater group.

"It was great to come back and it was wonderful to see what has happened around campus, even within the last 10 years," says Kramme. "I have always been proud of Culver-Stockton and I will always continue to be proud of it."

A banquet to pay tribute to Kramme and the other Fine Arts honorees was held during the Homecoming weekend.
