David McCullough: Dean's Forum

Author and historian David McCullough will speak on Qualities of Leadership at the SAS 2004 Dean's Forum on Wednesday, March 31, 4:30 p.m., in Irvine Auditorium.

Mr. McCullough's books have been praised for their narrative sweep, their scholarship, and their insight into American life. His best-selling biographies John Adams and Truman both garnered the Pulitzer Prize, and his numerous other honors include two Francis Parkman Prizes and the National Book Foundation Distinguished Contribution to American Letters Award. Mr. McCullough is also familiar to PBS fans as the host of Smithsonian World and The American Experience, and he can be heard as the narrator of The Civil War, Napoleon, and Seabiscuit.

An annual event celebrating intellectual accomplishment and the richness of the liberal arts tradition, the SAS Dean's Forum has featured such speakers as genomics pioneer Craig Venter, authors Tom Wolfe, John Updike, and Toni Morrison, and historian Arthur Schlesinger, Jr.
