Special Presentation with Ralph Nurnberger – John Hay and the Panama Canal: Friday, June 7, 5-7 p.m.

Historian Ralph Nurnberger, who served on the staff of the Senate Committee that oversaw the Panama Canal treaties, will examine the sweep of the canal saga, from the 1901 Hay-Pauncefote Treaty, signed in John Hay’s office, permitting the U.S. to build and fortify a Central American Canal, to the foreign-policy debate in America over ceding the canal to Panama in 1978. He will address such problematic issues as why the U.S. claimed the right to build a canal in another country, and why Panama was chosen. http://www.thefells.org

He has appeared on radio and television programs as an analyst on political and international issues.
