Bonnie Lynn-Sherow, K-State associate professor of history, will speak about “Vision, Value, and Vocation” at 10 a.m., Wednesday, October 23.
She and Jim Sherow, professor of history, wrote an essay about the importance of land-grant colleges that was included in a commemorative portfolio given to those who attended the 2013 presidential inaugural ceremonies.
The portfolio celebrates several noteworthy accomplishments of President Abraham Lincoln's administration 150 years ago through essays written by prominent historians. Essay topics include the Emancipation Proclamation, the Homestead Act, the Transcontinental Railway Act, the Morrill Land-Grant College Act, and the Gettsyburg Address.
Jean Bordewich, staff director of the U.S. Senate Committee on Rules and Administration, invited the Sherows to contribute an essay.
