Jim Davis Ball State University College of Business Commencement Address, May 24, 1986

From 1986, here is Garfield cartoonist Jim Davis, giving a commencement address at his alma mater Ball State University. This is the same year that he won an Emmy for his Garfield's Halloween Special CBS TV special and "Best Comic Strip" Division Award from the National Cartoonists Society. He tells them that his one message is to pursue happiness. (Despite this being on YouTube, this is audio-only. Ball State University Libraries has just uploaded this, along with other historic BSU audio events here. Take a listen to a 1968 address by Arthur C. Clarke talking about what life will be like in 2001.)
