SMART TOWNS: The Attack on Pearl Harbor &  the Battle of Midway
The attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941 and the Battle of Midway in 1942 changed the course of World War II and the world in just six months. Oakland University professor Frank Cardimen will discuss the issues and actions leading up to these two historic events, as well as how each event changed the course of history. RHPL records Smart Towns programs (if presenters agree). Recordings are posted on the RHPL website (under UseTheLibrary/VideoLectures) two-four weeks after the presentation.  For more Smart Towns programs around the community, visit smarttowns.rhpl.org. Smart Towns is a lifelong learning series presented by area partners, including the Rochester Hills Public Library, Oakland University, Rochester University, the Rochester Hills Museum at Van Hoosen Farm, Meadow Brook Hall, and Ascension Providence Rochester Hospital. Smart Towns partners collaborate to offer a unique series of programs exploring one topic per year. Lectures and presentations feature experts in their respective fields of study. The theme for 2020 is “Events that Changed the World.” Various aspects of health care, including holistic health care, have had a profound and life-changing effect on people around the world.
