Northwestern social sciences department plans Lincoln memorial

Northwestern Oklahoma State University’s Department of Social Sciences is planning a short program to recognize the 150th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln’s death and the 100th anniversary of the gift of the Lincoln bust to Northwestern from the graduating class of 1915. The program is set for Tuesday, April 14, at 1:30 p.m. at the Lincoln bust on the Herod Hall lawn and is free and open to the campus community and general public.

A short recitation of the Gettysburg Address will be given along with information about Lincoln’s influence on the United States. Handouts describing the Lincoln stained glass windows at the First United Methodist Church in Alva also will be made available. Following the program, the film “Lincoln” will be shown in Jesse Dunn Hall 306.

For more information contact Dr. Kay Decker, professor of sociology and Department of Social Sciences chair, at (580) 327-8521 or kldecker@nwosu.edu.
