Director's Notes:.

In January we present the work and influence of a third president of the United States. First considered was Abraham Lincoln, about
whom not short review will suffice.  Our second presidential program was on Theodore Roosevelt, whom we credit for cherishing the
wilderness, and the idea of national parks which he championed.  In January we explore what Thomas Jefferson considered to be
the foundation for country. What did he think? What did he know of civilizations, and how was he disposed to set forth principles for a
nation. How can it be said that “forged the directions for American Democracy?” Dr. Anthony Filipovitch is a Jefferson scholar who will
present this author of the Declaration of American Independencea.”

In January Dr. Anthony Flipovitch presents Makers of America: Thomas Jefferson.

Some people have asked for a mss. of Dr. Armajani’s presentation on Political Islam. Ask about this if you are interested.East.”
