Sir Harold Evans to speak Nov. 30
Sir Harold Evans will present a lecture about his critically acclaimed book, “They Made America: Innovators from Steam Engines to Search Engines: Two Centuries of Innovators,” on Wednesday, Nov. 30, at 7 p.m. in the Student Union Auditorium. The presentation, which is free and open to the public, will be the fifth installment of the 2005-06 Lecture~Concert Series. Evans’ most famous work, “The American Century,” is a provocative history of America’s realization of freedom from the American Revolution to 1889. After “The American Century,” he spent several years researching and writing an original account of the people in history who changed technology to write the follow up, “They Made America.” This book was adapted into a four-part documentary, which premiered on PBS in 2004.
