A leading scholar on the Lewis and Clark Expedition will speak Thursday, March 13, at 11 a.m. in 140 Joseph Smith Building during the 18th annual Russel B. Swensen Lecture at Brigham Young University sponsored by the History Department.

Gary E. Moulton, a professor of history at the university of Nebraska-Lincoln, will speak on The Seven Habits of Some Highly Effective Explorers. He is the editor of the 13-volume series titled, The Journals of the Lewis and Clark Expedition.

Moulton has received many awards for his research and teaching. Most recently, President George W. Bush invited him to the White House to give a presentation in honor of the Lewis and Clark bicentennial.

Following his lecture, Moulton will be at the BYU Bookstore at 3 p.m. for a book-signing event. That evening, the Annual History Department Awards Banquet will be at 6:30 p.m. in the BYU Skyroom.

The lecture series is in honor of Russel B. Swensen who taught at BYU for many years and chaired the Department of History. For more information, contact Julie Radle at (801) 422-3816.
