Dr. Gordon L. Berry
Dr. Berry has served as chief educational consultant to many of television’s prominent daytime programs and has discovered that children have learned to have a “sense of self”. Berry was also educational advisor to Bill Cosby and Lou Scheimer on “Fat Albert and The Cosby Kids“, one of the earliest programs to teach pro-social values to children. His work on the anti-drug special “Cartoon All-Stars To The Rescue” earned him a certificate of honor from the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. Dr. Berry combined bachelor’s and master’s degrees with a doctorate in education at Marquette University.
A prolific author and editor, and professor emeritus in the Graduate School of Education and Information Studies at the University of California Los Angeles, Berry credits his formative Marquette experience as “the academic and personal springboards for whatever level of success I might have achieved,” which includes, among his many television credits, the books Children and Television: Images in a Changing Socio-Cultural World and Research Paradigms, Television, and Social Behaviours, as well as the prestigious School of Education Distinguished Alumnus Award. We are blessed to have had Dr. Berry’s formidable expertise guiding us every step of the way in every aspect of producing “Lilly’s Light“.
