Dr. Crawford Speaks with Local Group

Wednesday, April 21, 2010

On Monday April 19, Dr. Crawford spoke with the University Club II in Kenton to discuss authoring a book. Dr. Michele Govekar of the Dicke Business College had contacted Crawford to bring him in for the meeting.

Crawford told them about writing his dissertation, which was later published, and how that process occurred. He related that he was fortunate to have received a fellowship that allowed him to write for 8-10 hours per day for nearly an entire semester. The dissertation became a book when Crawford met an editor for the Edwin Mellen Press at a conference, and she encouraged him to submit the manuscript.

The group of around 30 members then asked Crawford questions about his book and a wide ranging discussion of books, history, and students ensued.
