Tom Burger will give the free presentation, “Homegrown Hero: The Life of Benjamin Delaheuf Foulois” on Sunday, December, 21 at 1:00 pm in the Wykeham Room of the Gunn Memorial Library and Museum in Washington, Connecticut.

Benjamin Foulois is of one of Washington's most famous residents. Growing up in Washington, and attending The Gunnery, Benjamin Foulois always had a thirst for adventure and glory. While being expected to enter the family plumbing business, Ben ran away from Washington, enlisted in the military, and left his mark by becoming the Chief of the Army Air Corps in World War One, a leader in the creation of the Air Force, and most importantly, the first military aviator in the United States Armed Forces. The contributions of General Benjamin Foulois are still visible today, in both his small hometown of Washington, Connecticut and especially in the world of military aviation.

Tom Burger is a Sophomore at Indiana University, a member of The Gunnery Class of 2013, and was Gunn Scholar for the 2012-2013 academic year. Tom has held a lifelong interest in history, stemming from his relation to Civil War General Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson, and was greatly influenced by the contributions of his grandfather, Bill Malone. Tom now lives in Chicago, Illinois, has continued his love of history by choosing a History Major at Indiana University, holds many philanthropic and leadership positions in the Bloomington, Indiana community, and is a brother of the Delta Chi Fraternity.

    Contact: Stephen Bartkus, Museum Curator   860-868-7756   gunnmuseum@sbcglobal.net
   

Dr. Michael John Williams will give the free presentation, "The Evolution of International Society: The Legacy of World War I", on Sunday, January, 18 at 1:00 pm in the Wykeham Room of the Gunn Memorial Library in Washington, Connecticut. Following this lecture, a closing reception for the award winning exhibit, "Over There: Washington and the Great War", will take place from 2-4pm in the Gunn Museum.

The Great War was a turning point in the evolution of warfare and it was a conflict that would have far reaching ramifications for international society. The First World War led to the development of international laws regulating the use of certain weapons in warfare, while at the same time serving as the catalyst for a revolution in military affairs that would be realized in the Second World War. The conflict of 1914-1918 the result, in part, of fervent nationalism, also provided impetus for the European project and the idea of a European pacific federation. Meanwhile, the American role in the war provided President Wilson with the ability to enunciate his 14 Points, one of which, the right to self-determination, would undermine the European colonial empires ushering in decades of change. But perhaps most importantly, the war and its conclusion would set the basis for the next conflict in Europe. A truly transformative conflict, the legacy of the First World War still reverberates today. This lecture will trace developments from the war beyond the armistice to see how they went on to shape the world today.

Michael John Williams is Professor of International Relations, Director of the International Relations Program and Affiliate Professor at the Center for European Studies at New York University. His research focuses on US foreign policy, transatlantic relations, civil-military relations and the intersection between war, technology and society.

He is also co-editor of the critically acclaimed edited volume Power in World Politics (2007). 

Dr. Williams is a Stephen M. Kellen term member of the Council on Foreign Relations, a Fellow of the Inter-University Seminar on the Armed Forces and Society and an alumnus of the International Summer Policy Institute at American University.

The reception will immediately follow Dr. Michael John Williams's presentation, "The Evolution of International Society: The Legacy of World War I", which is taking place from 1-2 pm in the Wykeham Room of the Gunn Memorial Library.

This exhibit commemorates the 100th anniversary of World War One, one of the largest and bloodiest conflicts in history, where over 70 million military personnel were mobilized around the world and more than 10 million combatants and 7 million civilians were killed, including several from Washington, CT. Over 100 men and women from Washington, and more than 150 alumni and faculty from The Gunnery served in The Great War. Students in Bart McMann's "Artifacts and Archives" class at The Gunnery conducted research on their school’s involvement in the war and share their findings in a section of this exhibit.

Letters, pictures, and an interesting array of period artifacts from the museum, local families, and collectors, including Peter Tragni and Dr. Robert Jacobs, among others, are used to explore the dramatic experiences of Washington's soldiers, along with the extensive support efforts that were happening on the home front in Washington through such organizations as the Sister Susie Society, the Red Cross, the Women's Land Army, and the Home Guard. All of their fascinating stories were shared in this exhibit and a diverse series of public programs through the year, sponsored in part by the Connecticut Community Foundation
    
Art director Chris Zaima, designer Sandy Booth, and painter Keith Templeton, along with a team of other volunteers and staff, have created another visual masterpiece. Local history will come alive as visitors step back in time and explore the lives of Washington's residents during World War One, through their own words, and the impact this war had on our small town.
