Colloquium Speaker: Donald M. Goldstein
Dr. Donald Goldstein is an Emeritus Professor of the University of Pittsburgh, and is one of those rare historians who can be considered a National Resource. He is the preeminent authority on the Pearl Harbor attack, having personally interviewed many of the key Japanese and American personalities. Seven of his 27 books have been on Pearl Harbor, including working with Gordon Prange on At Dawn We Slept and Pearl Harbor: The Verdict of History, the authoritative The Pacific War Papers, and a biography of Fuchida, the Japanese aviator who led the attack.
Dr. Goldstein will talk about the Pearl Harbor attack and the personalities behind it in a wide-ranging, free-wheeling conversation. Here is the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to hear Dr. Goldstein, ask questions, and participate in a stimulating discussion of the Japanese attack.
