Edward J. Larson at the Hudson Library (May 3)
Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Edward J. Larson will discuss his latest book, To the Edges of the Earth: 1909, the Race for the Three Poles, and the Climax of the Age of Exploration, about the daring expeditions to the Arctic, Antarctica and the Himalayas. Larson will be speaking as part of a series of educational events to commemorate the completion of a conservation work on a mammoth tusk in the collection of the Hudson Library & Historical Society. The conservation was funded by a grant from the Federal Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) awarded by the State Library of Ohio.
Larson is University Professor of history and holds the Hugh & Hazel Darling Chair in Law at Pepperdine University. He received the Pulitzer Prize in History for Summer for the Gods: The Scopes Trial and America's Continuing Debate over Science and Religion. His other books include A Magnificent Catastrophe: The Tumultuous Election of 1800, America's First Presidential Campaign. From 2013 to 2014, Larson was an inaugural Library Fellow at the Fred W. Smith National Library for the Study of George Washington located on the grounds of Mount Vernon.
