Biographical History

From the Collection: A notable Brigham Young University personality in the fine arts, who added great strength to this college, was T. Earl Pardoe, who came to BYU in 1919 and began a lifelong career building the Department of Public Speaking and Dramatic Arts. In 1953, after 34 years, T. Earl Pardoe was retired from teaching. He was assigned to assist the Alumni Association, a position he held until his death in 1971. Because the phenomenal growth of speech and dramatic arts was built upon the foundation laid by Professor Pardoe and his wife, Kathryn, the large drama theatre of the Harris Fine Arts Center was named in their honor.
