Lawrence oers diverse summer ftness choices
When Ted Johnson walks by Fraser Hall, he notices somethingintriguing about the bloomingyellow and red tulips in the flowerbed. Unlike their cousins only a few hundred feet away by themarquee outside Watson Library that stretch straight up to the sun,these blooms all bend slightly tothe northeast.Johnson, a professor emeritus of French who has walked past Frasersince coming to the University in1968, can’t help but wonder why.On this year’s Stop Day walkingtour, “The Perspectives on theMonument of Mount Oread,” hehopes to find out.“There’s a certain humor inthese things,” Johnson said.For more than 20 years,Johnson has led a public walkingtour of campus, focusing on his-torically significant locations. Asthe tour covers different topics of discussion over the course of ninehours, attendees are encouragedto come and go.When the Spencer Art Museumopened its doors in the new build-ing in 1978, Johnson felt liberatedfrom boring projector slides as herealized he could incorporate realworks of art into his classroom.Explaining that “campus” comesfrom the Latin word for “field,” hewould lead his humanities classesacross campus, discovering pinetrees and grasses that aren’t nativeto the state of Kansas. Thesestrolls inspired an annual walkingtour open to the public.“The word ‘idea’ comes fromthe word ‘to see things different-ly,’” Johnson said. “On this tour,the idea is to stroll around. Ideaspop up, and then we cultivatethem.”As the sun peeked from 14thStreet on his first tour in 1991,Johnson explained how Lawrence,Tiananmen Square and ancientRoman cities are all arrangedalike on an east-west grid. Tounderstand the Natural History Museum building, he considersthat the limestone is 320 millionyears old — older than the stego-saurus of the Jurassic period. Asthe group passed the Campanileon a recent tour, another profes-sor recognized a line from anunfinished Cicero poem, “Cedantarma togae,” engraved on theWWII memorial.“I learn so much each time Ido this,” Johnson said. “If thereare, say, 10 or 20 people in thegroup, we have hundreds of yearsof experience right there, of com-petence and knowledge that they can contribute.”The tour begins Friday morn-ing at 9 a.m. in front of the NaturalHistory Museum. Events end at 5p.m. outside Spooner Hall with asummary of the day’s dialogues.
