George Washington and the Age of Discovery


George Washington’s Mount VernonStreamed live on Oct 14, 2021
Join the @USC Price and the Fred W. Smith National Library for the Study of George Washington for the annual George Washington Leadership Lecture. This year’s event will feature @NASA Chief Scientist, Dr. James Green, in a discussion that will parallel George Washington’s age of exploration and discovery with our own time.

The desire of 18th-century Americans like Washington to know the land to the west—the makeup of the soil, the sources of water, the topography and terrain—are surprisingly similar to the kinds of questions humanity is exploring today on the surface of Mars and elsewhere in the solar system. Join Dr. Green in a conversation about NASA’s latest discoveries, the future of space exploration, and how our efforts to understand our universe relate to our shared history.

Established through a generous gift by Maribeth Borthwick ’73, who also serves as the Vice Regent for California of the Mount Vernon Ladies’ Association, this lecture series explores the Father of our Country’s lifelong accomplishments, providing a better understanding of him as a person, as well as his remarkable leadership, professional achievements, and lasting legacy.
