Bicentennial Lecture Presented by Andrew O’Shaughnessy Recording Now Available!

The Colonnade Club was honored to have Andrew O’Shaughnessy present “The Illimitable Freedom of the Human Mind Thomas Jefferson’s Idea of a University.”

So that members who were unable to join us these evening for this special lecture, we have recorded his presentation and made it available on the Club’s YouTube page for all to enjoy.

His lecture 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. He argues that Jefferson’s vision of public education was a revolutionary as his other achievements and that it still has potential to stimulate discussion about the role of universities.

Colonnade Club members and the public are welcome to attend Bicentennial lectures hosted by Club. Please visit our calendar to learn more about upcoming lectures and presentations.

We look forward to seeing you at our next event!
