When Pulitzer-Prize winning author Donna Tartt published her first novel, The Secret History, in 1992, it was the subject of both hype and acclaim, breaking records both in the advance Tartt received for it as well as the number of copies in its first run. In the thirty years since its publication, it continues to be a widely-read and discussed “why-done-it?” detective novel. In this course, we will read, discuss, and analyze the novel along with its influences and literary allusions. Read: The Secret History, Donna Tartt More

The son of Vienna’s most prominent music critic, Erich Korngold was a prodigy in line with Mozart and Mendelssohn. His precocious early works defied his age. Max Rheinhardt brought him to Hollywood to score his 1935 film of Shakespeare’s Midsummer Night’s Dream. Endangered by the Anschluss on his return to Vienna, he was saved by a telegram from Jack Warner, inviting him to score the film Robin Hood. Korngold escaped with his family and spent the war years scoring 16 films, winning two Oscars. Although his work fell out of style after the war, his musical reputation was renewed beginning in the 1970’s, led by his son, record producer George Korngold. This course will survey his contributions to opera and vocal music. More

The 1920s was a unique period in American and world history. In this country, it was characterized by the end of the Progressive period with its significant social and political advances and a “return to normalcy” with Harding, Coolidge and Hoover in the White House. It was an era of eugenics, restrictions on immigration, the Red Scare, prohibition, bootlegging and gangsterism but it was also the era of speakeasies, the Jazz Age, flappers and a roaring stock market. There was an underlying sadness and disillusion brought on by the shocking and horrendous devastation of the Great War. In the midst of all this, two remarkable young writers emerged – F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemingway. This course will address the history of the 1920s and analyze and discuss both books and authors in the context of their times. Read: The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald; The Sun Also Rises, Ernest Hemingway This course is offered with the generous support of the Association for Continuing Education. More

George Washington and Benjamin Franklin were two senior leaders of the American Revolution. They were vastly different men but had significant influence, not only on their countrymen, but on international regard for the new nation. Franklin persuaded the French monarchy to support the colonists’ revolt against a king. Washington guided the Constitutional Convention and Franklin participated as wise sage. Larson’s book describes their friendship and how these two men became the “indispensable authors of American independence.” Read: Franklin & Washington: The Founding Partnership, Edward J. Larson This course is offered with the generous support of the Association for Continuing Education. More

The United States declared war on Germany on April 2, 1917. Three weeks later, gas mask development moved to a suburb of Cleveland called Nela Park. A partnership formed between the U.S. Bureau of Mines, the National Lampworks Company and the National Carbon Company to develop prototype gas masks. Cleveland was chosen because there was more knowledge concerning charcoal chemistry than anywhere else in the country. Within a month, the Secretary of War had ordered one million masks to be designed and produced. The offensive side of Chemical Warfare Service soon followed into Cleveland as well. Harvard Chemistry Professor James Conant came to Willoughby to supervise construction of a 30-acre site tasked with producing the warfare agent Lewisite. This plant was nicknamed “The Cleveland Mousetrap” because of the secrecy –as in “What goes in never comes out.” More
