Join Geoff Paddock as he presents a free lecture on his book titled “Indiana Political Heroes” at the History Center on Sunday, October 4, from 2:00-3:00 pm, followed by a book-signing.

Politics have always played an important role in Indiana, and the State itself at one time furnished candidates for national office for an assortment of American political parties. “Indiana Political Heroes,” written by Geoff Paddock, explores the lives of eight distinguished Hoosier politicians who have helped forge Indiana’s political legacy.

Geoff Paddock serves as the Executive Director of Headwaters Flood Control and Park Project in Fort Wayne. He is a frequent contributor to the Indiana Historical Society’s popular history magazine, Traces of Indiana and Midwestern History, and author of “Headwaters Park: Fort Wayne’s Lasting Legacy” and “Indiana Profiles of Leadership.”

This free lecture is part of the George R. Mather Sunday Lecture Series, and is made possible with support from the Dunsire Family Foundation. The History Center is located at 302 East Berry Street, Fort Wayne, Indiana.
