“From the Hell’s Brew of Malice, Hatred, and Vindictiveness”: The 1906 Investigation of George E. Ladd, Director of the Missouri School of Mines and Metallurgy
Join Dr. Larry Gragg, Distinguished Teaching Professor Emeritus of History at Missouri University of Science & Technology, for a conversation about George E. Ladd, the strong-willed director of the Missouri School of Mines and Metallurgy (MSM) at the turn of the twentieth century. Gragg explores how Ladd's determination to transform MSM into a first-rate technological institution created powerful enemies that led to a contentious investigation. He discusses why he chose to delve deeply into this particular incident while also putting it within the broader context of his research on the school and its history for his newly released book Forged in Gold: Missouri S&T's First 150 Years. Online and free, registration required.
