1912 was a year of changes in American culture and history. The country faced a three-way election year race for the Presidency as Teddy Roosevelt, William Howard Taft and Woodrow Wilson vied against one another. The unsinkable engineering marvel of Belfast, the Titanic sank, changing much of the wealthy and nouveau-wealthy family legacies in the United States and Britain.
Dr. James Senefeld, Dr. Jan de la Mer and Dr. Barry Gidcomb explore the implications of this momentous year in American history, Thursday, Oct. 11 at 6:30 p.m. in the Ledbetter Auditorium located in the Clement building on Columbia State’s main campus.
The discussion is free and open to the public.
