Professor to present 'Kentucky in World War II' program

The Anderson County Humanities Council, with local sponsorship by the Anderson County Historical Society, will be presenting a freee 'Kentucky in World War II' program on Thursday, Feb. 13 at 7 p.m. at the Anderson County Senior Citizen Center, according to a release. 

The program will provide community residents with an opportunity to spend some quality time with James Klotter, Kentucky historian and professor of history for Georgetown College.

"As the number of surviving World War II veterans shrinks with each passing day, Klotter says we should pause to remember that momentous conflict and those who fought it," event organizers said in the release. "This talk looks at Kentuckians who fought abroad, those who did their part at home, and the price paid by both. Klotter will conclude with an intriguing look at post-war predictions of the future."

The program is a presentation offered through the Kentucky Humanities Council, with local sponsorship provided by Anderson County Historical Society. Admission is free and open to the public.
