On Thursday, September 13, 2018 at 7 pm, Allison-Antrim Museum (AAMI), 365 South Ridge Avenue, Greencastle, PA, will hold the first fall monthly speaker meeting in the Barn. AAMI welcomes back Dr. Edward Steers, Jr., whose PowerPoint presentation is “Lincoln’s Image and Influence in the U.S. and Around the World.” Our 16th president has exercised more influence through his image and legacy than anyone else to hold that office. In all corners of the world, from Tokyo to London, Lincoln’s image is ever present. Please join us as Dr. Steers examines Lincoln’s legacy through the ages.
Steers is one of the leading Lincoln scholars in the country and has written over 60 articles in various magazines and historical journals including Civil War Times, North & South, Civil War History (Kent State), the Lincoln Herald, Louisiana Life, Civil War Regiments, and the Columbiad. In addition, he has written major articles for several newspapers including The Washington Times, The Newark Sunday Herald, and the Allentown Morning Call. Steers has appeared frequently on The History Channel, C -Span, and the Today Show. Steers is the author of more than 10 books on Lincoln and the Lincoln assassination, including the critically acclaimed Blood on the Moon: The Assassination of Abraham Lincoln.
Before Steers retired in 1994, he joined the staff of the National Institutes of Health, as a molecular biologist, and collaborated with Christian B. Anfinsen (Nobel Prize winner in 1972) until 1984 when he was appointed Deputy Science Director for intramural research in the National Institute Diabetes, Digestive, and Kidney Diseases.
The public is welcome and there is no admission fee for the speaker’s meeting, but donations are greatly appreciated, and will be credited toward Allison-Antrim Museum’s annual speakers’ series.
