985 Fall 2019 What Made George Washington Tick
Wednesday, 2:15–3:40, Oct. 23
Instructor: Peter R. Henriques
Coordinator: Velma Berkey

Professor Peter Henriques, while skeptical of “psycho-history,” uses some of the insights of Carl Jung and psychology to try to better understand America’s foremost statesman. He will argue that a key to understandingGeorge Washington’s motivation was his desire for secular immortality.
Dr. Peter R. Henriques received his PhD in history from the University of Virginia and is professor of history emeritus at George Mason University. He taught American and Virginia history with an emphasis on the Virginia founding fathers, especially George Washington. He is the author of Realistic Visionary: A Portrait of George Washington. Henriques’s current book project in progress is tentatively entitled First and Always: The Extraordinary Journey of George Washington. In 2012 he was the winner of the George Washington Memorial Award from the George Washington Masonic Memorial Association for his contributions to the study of George Washington.
