Blackboards and Bomb Shelters

Haley Hull

Join the National Museum of the Pacific War for this webinar entitled, "Blackboards and Bomb Shelters". During this 30-minute webinar registrants will hear from author James P. Bevill about an engaging story of four young men and their life changing experiences on the ground in Free China during the Japanese occupation.

James P. Bevill is an independent historian and award-winning author. His previous works focused on economic, financial, political and naval history. He guest curated several educational exhibits on the Republic of Texas at major museums in his home state. His love of history inspired him to read, organize and catalogue the voluminous papers of his father-in-law, Paul Springer, who taught at Yale-in-China in 1941-1942 before joining the U.S. State Department in Chungking. Those papers were the genesis for Blackboards and Bomb Shelters.
