Update from Dick Cermele, Ph.D '77
I graduated with a Ph.D in 1977, concentrating on directing as well as film studies and criticism. I spent the remaining years teaching, directing, and, on and off, chairing the theatre department at St. Cloud State University.
I retired in 1994, traveled for a while and am currently residing in Edina.
For the past several years I have been writing a filmscript on the life of Giuseppe Verdi, widely accepted as one of the music world's greatest composers of opera. Lesser known is the fact that he was also one of the leading lights in the revolution, unification and independence of Italy in the middle and late l800's. The progress of the filmscript continues to be demanding but delightful.
