Young Dwayne Hickman was a TV fixture in the 1950s and early ’60s. As a student at Loyola University, he had a supporting role in the smash hit “The Bob Cummings Show” and, after college, the lead — Dobie — in the groundbreaking comedy “The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis.” Hickman has enjoyed a full career in acting and directing, and another as a painter, which he pursues today. See his artwork here. We spoke to Hickman about his acting career, his friendship on- and off-camera with Bob Denver ’57, and his art work. He was interviewed by Editor Joseph Wakelee-Lynch.
