History Professor to Speak about Truman at Missouri State Archives
Jon Taylor, Associate Professor of History at UCM, will speak at the Missouri State Archives in Jefferson City on Thursday, May 23 at 7:00 pm at the invitation of the Secretary of State's office. Taylor will present a talk from his second of four books on American's 33rd president: Truman's Grandview Farm, published in 2011 by The History Press. The event is free and open to the public.
Taylor will draw upon photographs, personal letters, and even receipts to piece together a portrait of the rural farmer from Missouri who went on to lead the nation at the end of the Second World War and beyond.
Taylor earned his doctorate in history at the University of Missouri--Columbia in 2004, having been awarded the Harry S. Truman Library Institute Dissertation Fellowship. He began teaching in the Department of History and Anthropology that same year and was promoted to associate professor in 2011. His research specializes on the life of Truman and public history.
