• Alums, colleagues remember Prof. Lucas.
Bick Lucas liked to show students a photo of him attempting to defend a woman's basketball player while at the Denver Post. His lack of jumping ability led to the nickname, "Skywalker," in the caption. He was sports editor from 1968 to 1982.

Lucas taught design and editing, among other courses.
Lucas works on a computer in the basement of the former Franklin Building, where the journalism department was housed until 2004.
