The David E. Carter Creative Center



Located on the 3rd floor at the Media Center at Ohio University Southern Campus, the David E. Carter Creativity Center & Museum was dedicated on October 21, 2005.
The museum includes memorabilia from the life and career of David E. Carter, who grew up in nearby Flatwoods, Kentucky. His career in advertising, TV production, book publishing, and other related areas was based in Ashland, Kentucky. The glass cases contain many items from David's life and career, such as his boy scout uniform, his Jerry Mahoney ventriloquist dummy, a couple of Emmy Awards, and a photo of his first new car. All of Carter's 110+ book are also on display in the entry way to the museum.
He is a frequent visitor to the university and his work is an inspiration to students to see "just what is possible".
David now lives in Florida, but his office is alive and well in the David E. Carter Creativity Center & Museum at Ohio University Southern.
