David McCullough

Congratulations to David McCullough, 2016 Roesel lecturer and winner of this year’s John E. Dolibois History Prize. His presentation, “History as a Source of Strength,” was co-sponsored by the Michael J. Colligan History Project, The Lane Libraries, and the Hamilton Community Foundation. Marking the 150th anniversary of the Lane Libraries, Mr. McCullough reflected on the importance of history, public education, libraries, and learning in shaping American life through the ages.
