This light-hearted, timeless comedy is the story of Elwood P. Dowd, a lovable eccentric whose best friend is Harvey a six-foot-tall invisible rabbit whom he introduces to everyone. Elwood's sister Veta tries to commit Elwood to the local sanatorium, but he - and Harvey - slip out of the hospital, setting off a hilarious whirlwind of confusion and chaos as the entire town tries to catch a man and his "Pooka." This American Classic from 1944 won both the Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize for best play.

On June 14, Keren Brown Wilson and Michael DeShane will receive the 2013 Nohad A. Toulan Urban Pioneer Award from Portland State University for their groundbreaking work in helping people age with dignity.


Wilson and DeShane, who are married, support a scholarship program
for students who complete their first two years of education at Clackamas Community College then transfer to PSU to complete a bachelor's degree.


Wilson is a pioneer in
the model of assisted living that started in Oregon and spread across the United States. DeShane is president of a consulting, development, and management firm that provides technical assistance for assisted living communities with
a goal of maximizing independence for elders.


The Toulan award, named for PSU's founding dean, honors leaders for contributions to the political, social and physical landscape of our region.
