This year’s Presidential Lecture Series at Northwestern Oklahoma State University will feature information on one of the most admired chief executives, Franklin D. Roosevelt, on Monday, March 23, at 7 p.m. in the Education Center, room 109.
The guest speaker will be Dr. George McJimsey, professor emeritus of history at Iowa State University in Ames who will be discussing the life and times of the 32nd president.
Dr. Aaron Mason, associate professor of political science and co-director of the Institute for Citizenship Studies at Northwestern, said that Roosevelt will always be remembered for his leadership in the face of the 1930’s Great Depression and World War II’s aggressive militarism and expansionism, but questioned if that is all there is to know about him and his presidency.
The event is free and open to the public, and is sponsored by the Department of Social Sciences and the Institute.
For more information, please contact Mason at (580) 327-8522, (580) 327-8525 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
