For over 20 years, the Oregon Historical Society has presented the Mark O. Hatfield Lecture Series, bringing together the nation’s top scholars and award-winning authors for thought-provoking evenings of history.

About the Speaker:

The New York Times has called Michael Beschloss “easily the most widely recognized Presidential historian in the United States.” The Charlotte Observer has said, “Michael Beschloss knows more about America’s Presidents than perhaps anyone on earth.” Beschloss is an award-winning historian, bestselling author of nine books, and has been a New York Times contributing columnist. He is the NBC News Presidential Historian and a contributor to the PBS NewsHour.

Beschloss was born in Chicago in 1955. He has won an Emmy and six honorary degrees. He also has the largest Twitter following of any American historian – with more than 315,000 followers at last count. His Twitter account, which is called “@BeschlossDC,” appears on TIME magazine’s list of the world’s top Twitter feeds.

His newest book, available on October 9, 2018, titled Presidents of War, took him ten years to research and write. It tells the epic story of all of the American Presidents who have waged our major wars. Historian Jon Meacham says that Presidents of War is “monumental” and “a landmark book about power, leadership, and human nature itself.”

Beschloss is an alumnus of Andover and Williams College and the Harvard Business School, where he studied leadership in both the private and public sectors. He has served as an historian at the Smithsonian, a resident scholar at Oxford University, and a senior fellow of the Annenberg Foundation.

Series tickets are on sale now and start at $80; the four-part series includes Mitch Landrieu (March 5, 2019), H.W. Brands (March 19, 2019), Liza Mundy (April 16, 2019), and Michael Beschloss (May 7, 2019). Individual lecture tickets will be available January 2, 2019.
