Pixar president to lecture at the U

By Michael Olson

U alumnus Edwin Catmull, president of Pixar and Disney Animation Studios, will talk about his experiences making animated films such as “Toy Story,” “WALL-E” and “Monsters, Inc.” at the U today.

He is speaking at the School of Computing’s annual Organick Lecture Series, which will be held in the Warnock Engineering Building Room 104 at 6:30 p.m. It is free and open to the public.

“It is going to fill up fast,” said Chris Coleman, a computer professional for the School of Computing. “So come early.”

Catmull earned bachelor of science degrees in computer science and physics and a doctorate in computer science from the U in the 1960s and ’70s before leaving to become president of Pixar. He has returned to campus as the chairman of the U Engineering Advisory Council.
