American History Through Autobiography with Jed Watters. We will explore central issues in American History by reading the autobiographies of important people including Benjamin Franklin, Ulysses S. Grant, Anne Mood, Jimmy Piersall, and Robert McNamara. This course will include considerable reading (at least 50 pages for each class—selected chapters from each book). We will use the class periods to discuss how these participants saw their roles in the historical process. Jed Watters was a history professor at Assumption College and WPI for more than 30 years. He is a retired Naval Officer and analyst at the Naval War College in Newport, Rhode Island. Southgate residents are admitted to the class free of charge.
ALEXANDER CALDER Born in Pennsylvania, he was the third generation of successful sculptors. From when he was a small boy, he was always making “stuff”; toys, utensils, and objects out of bits of string, wire, buttons, cloth, wood and tin. He always had a sense of whimsy about his objects and invented the “Mobile”; a way to compose colorful shapes, and fine lines moving in a constantly changing arrangement. He is also known for creating and performing his own circus. Join us for a whimsical look into his world.
