Yesterday the Delphian Study Club heard a most interesting talk by Dr. Bruce A. Glasrud. We are fortunate in Seguin to have talented writers, artists, craftsmen/women – living amongst us!
Dr. Glasrud spoke about African Americans and the Presidency The Road to the White House which he edited with Cary D. Wintz. Bruce Glasrud resides in Seguin (as I wrote above: we are so fortunate). He is an independent historian and has authored or co-authored more than thirteen books including Black Women in Texas History, The African American West: A Century of Short Stories and Buffalo Soldiers in the West.
Black Women in Texas History was awarded the Texas State Historical Association Liz Carpenter Award for the Best Scholarly Book on the History of Women and Texas, 2008.
Initially (at the beginnings of the Delphian Study Club), members read and studied books (and would be tested on what they read and studied!). Now, club members have the good fortune to hear learned speakers such as Dr. Bruce A. Glasrud. Thus, the members are still always learning!
