Baylor Historian To Discuss Upcoming Books Jan. 19

Jan. 14, 2002

Dr. Eugene Baker, retired Baylor University historian, will discuss his two upcoming books -- As We Onward Go -- Baylor University in the 20th Century and First Ladies of Baylor -- at 8 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 19, at the Gov. Bill and Vara Daniel Historic Village. The event is free and open to the public.

Baker, who also served as director of public relations and special assistant to the president while at Baylor, received his bachelor's and master's degrees from the university. He also holds master's and doctoral degrees from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth. Prior to his tenure at Baylor, Baker served in public relations positions in Utah, Japan, Tennessee, Georgia and North Carolina.

In 1982, Baker was appointed university historian and directed to write a history of Baylor. That book, To Light the Ways of Time, was published in 1987. As We Onward Go is an updated version of his original Baylor history.

Pecan pie bars, Mother's glorified brownies and a cheese ring, recipes provided by current first lady Sue Sloan, and coffee ice cream punch, a recipe from former Baylor first lady Joy Reynolds, will be served during the lecture.

For more information, call the Gov. Bill and Vara Daniel Historic Village at 710-1160.
