In Memoriam: Leonard Nimoy

Actor Leonard Nimoy, best known for his iconic role as Mr. Spock in the 'Star Trek' series, died February 27 at age 83. Mr. Nimoy began his acting studies at the Heights in 1949, when Rev. John L. Bonn, S.J., who had developed BC's School of Dramatic and Expressional Arts two years earlier, persuaded the young local stage actor to participate in a BC summer theater program. Programs for five productions in which Mr. Nimoy had acting, lighting and stage managing credits are preserved in the University Archives. Mr. Nimoy fondly recalled his time at the Heights in a documentary by his son Adam, 'Leonard Nimoy's Boston,' which aired on WGBH-TV last summer.
