Edwin Shanke, World War II reporter and Marquette alumnus, will speak on campus Tuesday, Sept. 12, from 4 p.m. to 5:15 p.m. in the Prucha Reading Room on the third floor of Raynor Library. His lecture, “Dispatches from Nazi Germany: Bringing the Edwin A. Shanke Collection to Life in Digital Format,” will focus on talk of Nazism, fake news, and propaganda that fill the headlines today. All are issues Shanke wrestled with as an AP reporter in Germany from 1937-1941. Additionally, there will be a dramatic reading of excerpts from Shanke’s letters home.
The Marquette community is invited attend. The event is sponsored by Raynor Memorial Libraries’ Department of Special Collections and University Archives and the Department of History.
