Baylor Lariat: Professor’s book recalls experience in Iraq

Oct. 17, 2017
Between 2003 and 2007, teams of Baylor professors and other volunteers made five trips to Iraq to help fellow educators rebuild following the rule of Saddam Hussein. Bill Mitchell, Ph.D., Emeritus Professor of History and retired U.S. Air Force officer, has chronicled the Baylor teams’ efforts in a new book, “Baylor in Northern Iraq During Operation Iraqi Freedom.” “Every university should teach about its history,” Mitchell said. “This book is a small part of Baylor’s extensive and wonderful history. It is a now a published part of the Baylor legacy. Other generations years from now deserve to know how we were called for the unarmed forces—with heart—in an armed forces environment.”
