  ABOUT Professor Ronald C. White, Jr.:

  Ronald C. White, Jr. is the author of Lincoln’s Greatest
  Speech: The Second Inaugural (Simon and Schuster, 2002) and
  The Eloquent President: A Portrait of Lincoln Through His
  Words (Random House, 2005). Lincoln’s Greatest Speech was
  honored as a New York Times Notable Book of 2002 and was on
  the best-seller list of the Washington Post and the San
  Francisco Chronicle. The Book-of-the-Month Club said of The
  Eloquent President, “this is a book unlike any other you
  have read on our 16th president.” The Eloquent President
  has been on the Los Angeles Times bestselling list and in
  addition to being a selection of the Book-of-the-Month Club
  was selected by The History Book Club as its Main Selection
  for March 2005.

  Dr. White is a graduate of UCLA (Honors in History, 1961),
  Princeton Theological Seminary, 1964, and he earned his
  Ph.D. in Religion and History from Princeton University in
  1972. He is a Visiting Professor in the History department
  at UCLA for the Spring Quarter. (see below). White is the
  author or editor of seven books and is presently writing a
  biography of Abraham Lincoln. He has lectured at the White
  House and been interviewed on the News Hour with Jim Lehrer.
  He is Professor of American Religious History at San
  Francisco Theological Seminary and a Fellow at the
  Huntington Library.

  This quarter Prof. White is teaching the course on Religion
  in the USA (History 142C) here at UCLA, giving our students
  a special opportunity to learn from one of the leading
  historians of the effects of religious beliefs and practices
  on life in America. The last time he was our guest (two
  years ago) his students gave him rave evaluations. So the
  word is out there, and his course is once again full to
  overflowing.

  This lecture is free and is open to the public.
