The Williams Baptist College Vaughn Lecture will feature Dr. Duane Bolin, a history professor from Murray State University in Murray, Ky.
Bolin will speak on his book project, “Adolph Rupp and the Rise of Big-Time College Basketball in America,” which is under contract with the University Press of Kentucky and is set to release in 2017. The lecture is slated for Thursday, April 28, in WBC’s Mabee Student Center, and will begin at 7:00 p.m.
Bolin teaches American History, Kentucky History and Sports History at MSU. He has published projects with various journals and magazines, and has won multiple awards for teaching.
The Vaughn Lectureship is presented at Williams through an endowment by the late Jim and Wanda Lee Vaughn of Delaplaine. Both believed lecture series are important in the education of students, especially in areas of the humanities.
The public is invited and there is no charge to attend.
