+ Lecture offers new view of war
A Dec. 7 presentation at Marie Selby Botanical Gardens’ Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day event gave the audience the bottom-up view from the men, women, minorities and others who fought in World War II versus the top-down view of traditional history with its focus on presidents, diplomats and high-ranking military officers.
John Whiteclay Chambers II, Ph.D., distinguished professor of history at Rutgers University, presented.
Hosts were Curt Piehler, Ph.D., director of Florida State University Institute on World War II and the Human Experience, and Longboat Key resident Harold Ronson, who serves on the institute’s advisory board.
Approximately 75 people attended Chambers’ presentation featuring images and audio recordings from the Rutgers University Oral History Archives and the FSU institute.
