description
Dr. Mary Dalton graduated from Wake Forest in 1983 with a degree in Speech Communication. At the time of this interview Dr. Dalton was a Professor of Communication and Film Studies at Wake Forest University, a position she has held for 36 years. In this conversation, Dalton discusses her decision to come to Wake Forest and ultimately her career trajectory that led to becoming a professor. From her early years, she was familiar with Wake Forest considering her father was a graduate and her first home was the married student apartments on campus. Some of the more poignant stories Dr. Dalton shares center on the lifelong friendships she made as a part of Strings. Additionally, she discusses the obstacles she had to overcome to become a professor at the University and the lack of female leadership for much of her tenure.
