The Wylie House will be exploring the life and accomplishments of Dr. David Maxwell, Father of Indiana University. Discussions of Dr. Maxwell will examine his biography, from his early life as a young medical doctor to his championing for Bloomington to become a premiere university in Indiana, and his urging of Andrew Wylie to become the university’s first president. Panelists for this talk include: Dick Darling, Bob Dodd, Judy Holy, and Ron Jensen.
This event is part of the Wylie House Speaker Series. Offered each semester, these talks are open to the public and feature local experts discussing 19th-century topics related to IU history, the state of Indiana, and domestic life. All of these talks are free and will be held at the Wylie House's Morton C. Bradley Jr. Education Center, located at 317 E. 2nd St. For more information, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call 812-855-6224.
