After Elgin Lee Fuller Jr., '58, graduated from the University of Washington with his bachelor's degree in interdisciplinary visual arts, he went about making the world a better place—by entertaining people.

Fuller's Bink Family Clowns and Cornball Comedy Show, based out his West Seattle home, used magic, comedy, silly stunts and a traveling curiosity show to dazzle and delight families up and down the West Coast. Fuller died Sept. 24 at the age of 77.

Says his widow, Virginia: "My hope is that the University continues to inspire young artists to live their dreams."
