Lecture by Professor Kurk Dorsey

Seventy-five years ago, U.S. leaders faced a series of difficult decisions about the nation’s role in the world. Fearing a rise in Soviet power and a decline in faith in democracy in Europe, men like Dean Acheson and George Marshall worried that the hard-won victory in World War II was about to be lost.  In this illustrated lecture, Professor Kurk Dorsey of the UNH History Department will show how these leaders reshaped the definition of the U.S. national interest to create a new foreign policy that would dominate U.S. politics for decades.

Admission is $5.00 for members and $10.00 for non-members. Please use the reservation form below or call 603-569-1212 for reservations as seated is limited. Museum doors open at 6pm program begins at 7pm.
