Dr. Robert L. Reid, USI provost emeritus and professor emeritus of history, will present a free, illustrated lecture on “The Great Flood of 1937” at 2 p.m. Tuesday, November 13, in Kleymeyer Hall in the lower level of the Liberal Arts Center at USI.

Reid’s January lecture on the same topic attracted a standing-room only crowd to the Evansville Museum of Arts, History, and Science. The lecture has since been updated with new video footage and photos.

Reid has published several books on local and North American history. He holds a bachelor’s degree from St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota, and master’s and doctoral degrees from Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois.

The program is for USI Retirees, but the public is welcome to attend.
