984 Spring 2019 “Did You Know?” A Look at Some Interesting and Little-known Facts about George Washington
Wednesday, 2:15–3:40, Apr. 24
Fairfax Lord of Life
Instructor: Peter R. Henriques
Coordinator: Velma Berkey
Rather than following his usual pattern of focusing on one aspect of George Washington’s remarkable life, Professor Henriques will touch on a variety of interesting and relatively little-known facts about Washington, including some that are not very complimentary.
Dr. Peter R. Henriques received his PhD in history from the University of Virginia and is Professor of History Emeritus at George Mason University. His book, Realistic Visionary: A Portrait of George Washington, is described as one of the five best books to understand our first President. Henriques’s current book project in progress is entitled, Matchless: The Leadership of George Washington and other Essays. In 2012 he was the winner of the George Washington Memorial Award given by the George Washington Masonic Memorial Association for his contributions to the study of George Washington.
