Veteran's Day Book Talk

Veteran's Day Book Talk

The public is invited to a book talk by Nimrod Frazer, author of Send the Alabamians: World War I Fighters in the Rainbow Division, on Tuesday, November 11 at 3 p.m. in the Caroline Marshall Draughon Auditorium on the ground floor of the Ralph Brown Draughon Library.

Send the Alabamians recounts the story of the 167th Infantry Regiment of the WWI Rainbow Division from their recruitment to their valiant service on the bloody fields of eastern France in the climactic final months of World War I.

Nimrod Frazer is a retired investment banker and former CEO of Enstar. He earned his MBA at Harvard and was awarded the Silver Star for his military service in Korea. His research on the Rainbow Division of WWI stems from his father’s stories of the famous team. 

This event is being sponsored by the Caroline Marshall Draughon Center for the Arts & Humanities and the Department of History in the College of Liberal Arts at Auburn University, and the Auburn University Libraries.

The event is free, open to the public, and a reception will follow the lecture. Books will be available for purchase and signing. For more information on the program, call 334-844-4903 or visit www.auburn.edu/cah.
