UNH History Professor Kurk Dorsey to Present Illustrated Lecture at Wright Museum

On Tuesday, September 10 from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m., UNH History Professor and Department Chair Kurk Dorsey will present an illustrated lecture on the politics of D-Day as part of Wright Museum’s Lecture Series.

In the lecture, Dorsey will examine the forces that impeded Western Allies from satisfying Soviet demands and the struggle over what the Second Front was supposed to accomplish.

“Dorsey will supply fascinating insight into the history of D-Day by discussing Stalin, Churchill, Roosevelt and the politics of the invasion,” said Mike Culver, museum executive director.” This should be really interesting.”

“When and Where? Stalin, Churchill, Roosevelt and the Politics of the D-Day Invasion” takes place at Wright Museum, 77 Center Street in Wolfeboro. Admission is $3 for members and $8 for non-members. Seating is limited, and reservations can be made by calling 603-569-1212.

The region’s leading resource for educators and learners of all ages on World War II, Wright Museum features more than 14,000 items in its collection that are representative of both the homefront and battlefield.
