Mike Babcock, a freelance writer, has covered Cornhusker football for twenty years, including seventeen at the "Lincoln Journal Star" and now as a contributing editor for "Huskers Illustrated". He also writes a sports column for the Omaha-based entertainment weekly "The Reader". He had some hands-on experience (of a sort) in the program, helping Gib Babcock, the equipment manager and his uncle, put red stripes on Cornhusker helmets in the late 1960s while he was a sophomore English major at the university.
Susan Eleanor Seddon was born in Brazil in 1941 of English parent who had emigrated from South Africa. She grew up on a large citrus and cattle ranch enjoying a strong connection to nature and a rich fantasy life fed by folktales told by her father and the ranch hands. Encouraged by her father, she began drawing her first subjects were the ranch's cows and horses. Boulet never studied art formally. She said, in fact, that she never planned on becoming an artist--the vocation came to her as by accident. In 1967 she came to the United State, where she met and married Lawrence Boulet in 1969 their son Eric was born--an event Susan credited with freeing her creavity "[Eric] somehow freed the child in me; gave me permission to enjoy fantasy.. gave me permission to do unicorns and dragons." Around 1980 Boulet began painting images that, she felt, tapped into the collective human unconscious--images of goddesses and shamans that married the forms of animal and human into a coherent whole She drew inspiration from mythology and poetry, Jungian psychology, and worldwide spiritual traditions, as well as her deep love of animals and the natural world. Susan Seddon Boulet died in her home in Oakland, California, on April 28, 1997, after long struggle with cancer. Her painting are held in collections worldwide.
