I’ve received a kind invitation from the Ohio State geography department to present to their Colloquium Series this fall. The tentative dates are November 3/4, 2011. No title yet, but it would be appropriate to talk about Arthur Robinson and the OSS, since Robbie was a grad student at OSU when he was inveigled to DC. While there, he went from a map consultant on $10 a day, to Chief of the Map Division of the OSS.
There are some top names who’ve presented in the past, so I’ll be in great company.
Columbus is about 3 hours drive from Lexington, so it shouldn’t be a problem. Wish there was a nice train though!
Thanks to Mat Coleman and the department for thinking of me.
