John Bradbury, retired assistant director of the State Historical Society of Missouri, will present a lecture at 7 p.m. Friday, June 22, on the second floor of the Curtis Laws Wilson Library. His lecture is titled “Civil War Across the Ozarks.”

The lecture is part of the library’s summer exhibition, “Impressions of the Civil War in the West,” which will run through Friday, Aug. 31.

Bradbury began working for the Western Historical Manuscript Collection when its office in Rolla opened in 1980 and served as assistant director at the research center in Rolla after the manuscript collection merged with the State Historical Society of Missouri in 2011. He retired and was appointed a Center for Missouri Studies senior fellow in 2015. Bradbury has written, edited, and compiled more than 90 scholarly articles and books, and is also the author of several book reviews, newsletter stories and outreach publications.
