Stuart G. Christian, Jr., Lecture
The Stuart G. Christian, Jr., Lecture was named in honor of the former president of the VHS and takes place in the spring. Because "Punky" Christian was a decorated veteran of the Normandy Campaign, we have focused the series on topics from the era of World War II. Previous speakers have included Elizabeth and Michael Norman, Robert Edsel, and Mitchell Zuckoff. On May 23, 2013 Rick Atkinson will deliver a lecture entitled The Guns at Last Light: The War in Western Europe, 1944-1945. Purchase tickets for this year's Stuart G. Christian Jr., Lecture.
