George Goetz Lecture
Young George Washington: Looking for Love & Fame in a Time of War
George Washington was born in 1732 in Northern Virginia, then a colony of Great Britain. His prospects for the future did not seem particularly promising, but then there came a reversal of fortune. By 1756 he had become a war hero. By 1759 he married Martha– a rich young widow and now had a plantation at Mt. Vernon on the Potomac River. But before Martha, there was Betsy, Sally, Mary and other ‘low land beauties’. Before becoming a hero he came close to death many times fighting for the British in the French and Indian War. With slides, music and some acting by members of Southgate’s Play Reading Group, his early life (before 28 years old) will unfold. Southgate Resident George Goetz, owner of over 50 books on Washington, will present this program on young George Washington’s character development in mid-18th century Virginia. George has given many lectures at Southgate including the Buffalo World’s Fair of 1901.
WISE Program: Conspiracy Culture and Hollywood from the Red Scare to Watergate
In this course we examine an earlier era when conspiracy thinking was on the rise – the late 40s to mid-70s.We look at the role Hollywood films played in reflecting, and in some cases spreading conspiracy ideas. We will consider many of the conspiracy themed films from these years, among them Invasion of the Body Snatchers, The Manchurian Candidate, and All the President’s Men. INSTRUCTOR: Gordon Arnold is the author of several books about popular culture and U.S. society.
