Sir Harold Evans to speak Nov. 30
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. For more
