September 17, 2013 is the 226th anniversary of the adoption of the United States Constitution. In honor of Constitution Day, the Walter and Leonore Annenberg Presidential Learning Center in partnership with the Ashbrook Center at Ashland University is proud to present Professor Gordon Lloyd of Pepperdine University and TeachingAmericanHistory.org to help commemorate this important day. Dr. Gordon Lloyd will present to us “Ten Ways to Love Your Framers” with lecture topics on the Founding Fathers, the Constitutional Convention and origins of the Constitution. This event is open to teachers, students and the general public.
Dr. Gordon Lloyd presents the Constitutional Convention as a Four Act Drama with intimate knowledge of every individual Framer and a powerful grasp of events that took place during the Constitutional Convention. Professor Gordon Lloyd earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in economics and political science at McGill University. He completed all the course work toward a doctorate in economics at the University of Chicago before receiving his Master of Arts and PhD degrees in government at Claremont Graduate School. The coauthor of three books on the American founding and sole author of a book on the political economy of the New Deal, he also has numerous articles, reviews, and opinion-editorials to his credit. His latest coauthored book, The Two Narratives of Political Economy, was published in 2010. He is the creator, with the help of the Ashbrook Center, of three highly regarded websites on the origin of the Constitution. He has received many teaching, scholarly, and leadership awards including admission to Phi Beta Kappa and the Howard White Award for Teaching Excellence at Pepperdine University.
This event will be filmed for future broadcasts.
