Fall Lecture: David Patterson, The Pinchots: A Family Saga
David Patterson, The Pinchots: A Family Saga
In-Person at OLLI
David Patterson's career includes teaching American history courses at major universities and his chief editorship of the longstanding US Department of State series, Foreign Relations of the United States. The Pinchots is an outgrowth of his concerns about global environmental challenges, which Gifford Pinchot early confronted, and his interest in Amos Pinchot's commitment to civil liberties and peace. He is the author of two previously well received books, Toward a Warless World: The Travail of the American Peace Movement, 1887-1914 and The Search for Negotiated Peace: Women’s Activism and Citizen Diplomacy in World War I. David received his BA from Yale University and PhD from the University of California, Berkeley. He and his wife live in Chevy Chase, Maryland.
