PowerPoint images will illustrate the lecture.
 
Professor Donald Rogers is adjunct lecturer Central Connecticut State University, where he has taught American history and legal-constitutional history since 1992.  This past spring he was also an adjunct lecturer in history at Housatonic Community College, University of Connecticut-Storrs, and University of Bridgeport.  He received his Ph.D. in history at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1983, and is author of Making Capitalism Safe:  Work Safety and Health Regulation in America, 1880-1940, editor of Voting and the Spirit of American Democracy, and articles on Connecticut legal history and Connecticut's Progressive Era.  He is current president of the Connecticut Coordinating Committee for the Promotion of History and a long-time Board member and past president of Civics First.
 
The Connecticut-based organization presenting the program, “Civics First (www.civicsfirst.org),” is a 40-year-old non-profit which provides law and citizenship education for schools and communities statewide. Among its many activities, Civics First is the organizer of the state mock trial program in which Canton High students have often competed.
