Bicentennial Speaker: Dr. James Pate

June 18 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

James P. Pate is an independent scholar/writer and an Emeritus Professor of History at the University of West Alabama where he served as a department chair, dean, and vice president for academic affairs (1967-1995).

Albert James Pickett’s two-volume History of Alabama, and Incidentally of Georgia and Mississippi, from the Earliest Period first appeared in September 1851. Demand for the $3 set caused Charleston publisher Walker and James to issue a second and third edition before year’s end. William Gilmore Simms, the South’s most prolific writer, called it “one of the prettiest specimens of book making ever done in America.” Newspapers and literary journals commended Pickett’s “absolutely enchanting” fresh style and “his important service to his state.”
