F301 Summer 2020 The Frontiersmen, Part 3: The Great Plains Frontier, A Clash of Cultures
Tuesdays, 11:50–1:15, June 23–July 21
Five sessions
Instructor: Jim Anderson

From the earliest New World settlements, the proximity of those vast, wild, and unsettled spaces in North America has had a significant impact on the history of our nation. It also has influenced our character as a people distinct from European roots. In these five lectures, we will focus on individuals who were on the leading edge of our national expansion westward and who exemplified many of the traits that have come to be associated with the “American Character.” These will include Charles Goodnight and William “Buffalo Bill” Cody.
Jim Anderson spent three years in the Air Force and 27 years with the CIA, followed by 11 years conducting corporate leadership seminars at Civil War battlefields. He holds an MA in history from the University of Memphis. Since 2009, he has taught and conducted tours at OLLI on the Civil War and the frontier.
