DALLAS (SMU) -- Southern Methodist University will present the fifth annual Godbey Lecture Series Spring 2001 Tour of Homes featuring the high-rise homes of Pat Patterson, Shirley Pollock and Wylodean and Bill Saxon.

The event will begin with a luncheon at 11:45 a.m. Thursday, March 29, at the Dallas Country Club, followed by a chartered bus trip to each of the homes, with buses returning to the country club around 4 p.m. The cost for the luncheon and home tour is $110, of which $60 is a tax-deductible contribution benefiting the SMU Fund for Faculty Excellence that provides financial assistance to Dedman College professors to further their scholarly research and professional development.

One of the homes is the elegantly renovated penthouse of the late Greer Garson Fogelson. The other homes are located at the Mansion Residences in the exclusive Turtle Creek area of Dallas.
