SHSU Media Contact: Kim Mathie
Jean Bodon, professor and chair of Sam Houston State University’s department of mass communication, has a special interest in Olympic history. From the participants to the different sports to the minutiae that might escape a non-historian’s notice, he likes it all.
“I watched my first Olympic Games when I was 10 years old,” said Bodon, who grew up in Paris. “I’ve studied the Olympics all my life since then—reading magazines, reports, and watching interviews.”
