Nebraska History Professor to Speak at Chadron State College

Dr. Rolland Dewing, professor emeritus of history at Chadron State College, will speak on the CSC campus on Wednesday, September 17 at 7 p.m. in the Chicoine Atrium of the Mari Sandoz High Plains Heritage Center. The presentation is open to the public and free of charge.

Dewing's presentation is entitled, "The Northern Great Plains: The Other Dust Bowl" and will discuss the impact of drought in the Northern Great Plains in the 1930's, with particular emphasis on its effects on Western Nebraska.

Much of the material Dewing will cover in his discussion originates in his book Regions in Transition: the Northern Great Plains and the Pacific Northwest in the Great Depression, published by University Press of America in 2006.
