Title

Reflections in Time: Vic Blackwell

Subject

NU Merger

Description

Interview with Dr. Vic Blackwell, faculty member in the Art Department (1958-1985), Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences (1972-1975), and Acting Chancellor (1971/72) of the University of Nebraska at Omaha. Producer/host, Paul Borge. Produced in cooperation with the UNO Alumni Association, College of Arts and Sciences, University Television.
In this excerpt, which can be found at timestamp 40:33:13-41:38:12 in the full episode of Reflections in Time, Vic Blackwell, who was appointed interim chancellor of UNO after Kirk Naylor was fired, discusses that the irony of the merger was that OU merged with NU in an attempt "to remain independent," but after the merger, the push from President Varner was unity. It wasn't until the 1980s that UNO started to shift back into some independence.
