October 31, 2016 (Lemon Grove) -- The celebrated historian Karl Zingheim of the USS Midway Museum will speak at the next "History Alive" for "A Fireside Chat with Karl Zingheim" on Nov. 3 at 7 p.m. in the H. Lee House, 3205 Olive, Lemon Grove.
Prof. Zingheim will discuss the role of America's navy and marine corps in World War One, starting in 1917. The lecture will precede Nov. 11, the armistice that officially ended the war (1918), and herald the year-long observance of the centennial in 2017.
Many will recall Prof. Zingheim's virtuoso turn this past March at Vietnam Remembered on The Remembrance Project, when his ability to relate complex political events clearly and succinctly engrossed a packed house.
"History Alive" is always free* and, unless otherwise noted, suitable for ages 18 and over.
Videotaping of "History Alive" lectures is underwritten by a Community Enhancement Grant from the San Diego Board of Supervisors on the recommendation of Supervisor Dianne Jacob. Ancillary costs of the series are underwritten in part by the Mary England Endowment for Education.
*Donations are always welcome.
