Location: Pavilion VII
Complimentary Event

Join us for a lecture by Andrew O’Shaughnessy, Saunders Director, Robert H. Smith International Center for Jefferson Studies at Monticello, and Professor of American History at the University of Virginia as he discusses Thomas Jefferson who was intimately involved in every aspect of the creation of the University of Virginia. It represented what he regarded as one of the three greatest achievements of his life which he wanted to be listed on his tombstone. It revealed his talents as a lawyer who drafted the legislation for the assembly; as a surveyor who personally mapped the grounds; as a politician who masterminded the strategy to win approval in the assembly and to deflect intense opposition; as an architect who designed the layout, chose the building materials, and corresponded with the craftsman; and as an intellectual who developed an innovative curriculum, suggested the books for the library and the criteria for selecting the faculty. He even wined and dined the faculty and students at Monticello. Jefferson was concerned with what remains a perennial issue which is the importance of education in the success of the republican democratic experiment. Although dismissed in higher education histories as a “finishing school for southern aristocrats” which trained many of the future leaders of the Confederacy, the lecture will argue that his vision of public education was as revolutionary as the other achievements on his tombstone and that it still has the potential to stimulate discussion about the role of universities

Doors to open at 6:00 for light refreshments, lecture to begin promptly at 6:30pm-8:00pm.
