Webinar: Blackboards and Bomb Shelters

May 15, 2024 1:00pm - 2:00pm
Free Admission

Join the National Museum of the Pacific War for our May webinar entitled, "Blackboards and Bomb Shelters.” During this 30-minute webinar registrants will hear author James P. Bevill introduce the engaging story, depicted in the book, 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 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. Bevill’s 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 where he works in financial services.

Don't forget to mark your calendars for Wednesday, May 15th at 1:00 pm to attend this program.
