Wellesnet is reporting that the Bowling Green State University is removing the Gish name from the theater but retain the Ohio native’s endowment and personal memorabilia because of Lillian Gish’s role in D. W. Griffith’s controversial 1915 film The Birth of a Nation. In removing the Gish name, Bowling Green State University officials said in a 12 page report that " in no way is our intent to minimize her accomplishments or contributions to film culture and history. However, as an educational institution, BGSU has a primary responsibility to its students and an overriding obligation to create an inclusive learning environment." Nearly a dozen prominent Wellesians were among the more than 50 artists, writers, and film scholars calling for the restoration of actresses Lillian and Dorothy Gish’s names to a theater established in their honor 43 years ago at Bowling Green State University in Ohio. A very bad decision made by the University if you ask me!
