2016 Cunneen-Hackett Lecture

Announcing the 2016 Cunneen-Hackett Lecture in Hudson River Valley History featuring Colonel James Scott Wheeler, USA (Ret.) Ph.D. In his talk, “General Jacob Devers, from the Hudson to the Rhine,” Colonel Wheeler will explore the many contributions of General Jacob Devers, during his time at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point and as an underappreciated army group commander in the European Theater of Operations during World War II. The lecture will take place on Thursday, April 21, 2016 at 7 pm in the Nelly Goletti Theatre of the Marist College Student Center.

Colonel Wheeler is the author of numerous books on military history. His most recent title, Jacob L. Devers: A General’s Life was released in 2015. A White House Fellow and former armor battalion commander, he is a retired professor of history at the United States Military Academy at West Point.

The Charlotte Cunneen-Hackett Lecture Series in Hudson River Valley History, established in 2001, was created to advance the appreciation of the rich heritage of the Hudson River Valley and to promote its history.
