Annual Jeans Lecture in History to be presented at Missouri Southern

Joplin, MO (SNS) – The 20th annual Jeans Lecture in History will be held at 7 p.m. Wednesday, April 9, in Corley Auditorium at Missouri Southern State University.

Frederick Hoxie – the Swanlund Professor of History, Law and American Indian Studies at the University of Illinois – will present “This Indian Country: American Indian Activists and the Place They Made.”

Hoxie has written and edited more than a dozen books, most recently “Lewis and Clark and the Indian Country.” He served as the general editor for “The American Indians” and as the series editor for “Cambridge Studies in American Indian History” along with Neal Salisbury. He’s a founding trustee for the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of the American Indian and a former president of the American Society for Ethno-history.

“This Indian Country: American Indian Activists and the Place They Made” was published in 2012 and won the Caughey Prize, awarded by the Western History Association for the best book on western history.

The Jeans Lecture in History is named in honor of Dr. Virgil and Virginia Jeans, longtime residents of Joplin who placed a high value on education. Upon their deaths, contributions in their memory were made to the Missouri Southern Foundation to fund the lecture series.
