Daniels to Deliver 14th Barbara Early-Vreeland Lecture

Roger Daniels will present “American Immigration Policy: Myths and Realities” at the Barbara Early-Vreeland lecture. His talk will take place at 7 p.m., March 3, in the Student Union Building Activities Room.

Daniels is the Charles Phelps Taft professor emeritus of history at the University of Cincinnati where he has served as the disertation adviser for 18 PhDs. His university awarded him the 2001-2002 Award for Excellence in Mentoring shortly before his retirement from full-time teaching. A former journalist, Daniels has written 14 volumes and many articles, mostly on immigration history, Asian Americans and Japanese internment during World War II.

In addition to Daniels’ lecture, members of the University community are invited to attend a special meeting of professor of Asian history Huping Ling’s Asian American History class at 6 p.m., March 2, in the Baldwin Hall Little Theatre. At the meeting, Daniels will discuss the incarceration of Japanese Americans during World War II.

The Barbara Early-Vreeland Lecture was established by Joseph Vreeland in memory of his wife, a 1973 Truman graduate. The lecture gives the Truman community the opportunity to hear public lectures by scholars of international reputation.
