A Historian Treat For Us Wednesday Evening (the 14th) — George W. Liebman

Paul Carrington has recruited another excellent speaker for us, to be heard today or tomorrow, depending on whether you are reading this on Tuesday of Wednesday.  The presentation by George Liebman will be at 7:30 in the Auditorium on this Wednesday.

Liebman’s most recent book, described here by the American Law Institute, is:

The Fall of the House of Speyer: The Story of a Banking Dynasty, was recently published. The work tells the story of the Speyer banking dynasty, one of the largest investment banking firms in the United States in the early 1900s.

Other books by Liebman are:   The Common Law Tradition: A Collective Portrait of Five Legal Scholars; Diplomacy Between the Wars: Five Diplomats and the Shaping of the Modern World; and The Last American Diplomat: John D. Negroponte and His Times, 1960-2010.

A huge range of knowledge.  Should be fascinating.
