Paul Gaston Will Present First Lecture In New Series About History Scholarship

March 12, 2002-- Paul M. Gaston, professor emeritus at the University of Virginia and a leading scholar of Southern history, will present the inaugural lecture in a new history department series, "Why We Are Historians," on Thursday, March 21.

Gaston’s talk, titled "Forty Years Among the Wahoos: Doing History With a Purpose," will be held at 3:30 p.m. in Jefferson Hall, West Range, and is open to the public. He is author of the classic book, "The New South Creed: A Study in Southern Myth-Making" and numerous other works, including a study of public school desegregation in Charlottesville. The lecture will be followed by a reception.

Other lectures in the series, aimed mainly at undergraduates but open to all, will be held periodically each semester. Faculty members will talk about the passion and frustration of their work, why they became historians and the issues they explore.
