Southern Adventist University’s honors program, Southern Scholars, announces historian Eric Anderson, PhD, as presenter for the first Benjamin McArthur Endowed Lecture. All are invited to the free talk on Thursday, April 13 at 7 p.m. in Ackerman Auditorium on the second floor of Mabel Wood Hall as Dr. Anderson explores how society approaches an imperfect past and flawed heroes.
 
This new lecture series honors the late Southern professor Benjamin McArthur, PhD, who taught in the History and Political Studies Department for 35 years.
These annual lectures will address topics that Dr. McArthur cared deeply about: the life of the mind, service to community and spiritual commitment. Dr. Anderson’s lecture also will serve as the keynote address for the Association of Seventh-day Adventist Historians, who are meeting on the university campus.
 
Dr. Anderson, a personal friend of the Dr. McArthur family, holds a doctorate in history from the University of Chicago. In addition to 30 years of teaching and administration in higher education, Dr. Anderson has been a Fulbright lecturer in Greece and a program officer at the National Endowment for the Humanities. A specialist in United States history, his research focus includes an interest in African American history and the South. For more information, visit southern.edu/mcarthurlecture.
