About Raymond S. Wilkes


Raymond S. Wilkes, Dean of Ohio University Lancaster 1978-1994, made exceptional contributions to the educational and cultural life of Fairfield County. It was through Dr. Wilkes leadership, passion and promotion of music, theatre, and the visual arts that the gallery for the visual arts at Ohio University Lancaster was created.

Dr. Wilkes celebrated the arts in our community, and his tireless efforts were instrumental in the development of the annual Lancaster Festival.
