Texas Collection Presents Annual Spring Lecture about Brazos River

March 5, 2013

The Texas Collection will host its annual spring lecture on Tues., March 19, 2013 from 3:30-4:40 p.m. in Bennett Auditorium where Dr. Kenna Lang Archer will speak about her topic of choice, the Brazos River. Her lecture is entitled "The Brazos River and the Baylor Archives - A History of Floods and Droughts, a Story of Resilience and Ideals."

Dr. Archer earned both undergraduate and masters degrees at Baylor, a doctorate in American History from Texas Tech University, and currently teaches survey courses at San Angelo State University. The Brazos River is a topic in which she is well versed and excited to speak about to the Baylor community.

John Wilson, director of The Texas Collection, said of Archer and her lecture, "the work she performed here in the past has been outstanding. Her topic is also intriguing; the Brazos River has an impact in all of our lives here in Central Texas. It seems this topic would be of interest to most people, either from an historical perspective or a current perspective."

Wilson encourages students to interact with Archer after the event at a reception in The Texas Collection, where they will be free to ask questions about her work, research and career interests.
