TODAY IN FSU HISTORY: On Thursday, December 5, 1963, Florida State University student and future rock star, Jim Morrison appeared in a campus theater production playing Gus in Harold Pinter’s “The Dumb Waiter.” The play, which took place in the Conradi Theater on December 5th and 6th, 1963 was produced in partial fulfilment of Sammy Kilman’s master’s degree, and also stared D. Keith Carlson.
In this promotional photograph for the play in the December 3, 1963 Flambeau, Morrison is identified as Stanislous Bolislavsky. Morrison’s classmate, Gerald McClain attributed this pseudonym to his sense of humour. The other person in the photograph is D. Keith Carlson. In 1964, Morrison left FSU and moved to California to attend film school at UCLA. Carlson went on to a career in television, which included four years as a producer-director for the “Zoom” children’s show broadcast on PBS. He died in 1975.
