The Whitewater Historical Society is fortunate to have Dr. Richard Haney, former Professor of History at UWW, speak about his book that chronicles his family’s life during World War II.  Professor Haney’s father fought and died in World War II and his book describes his and his mother’s lives on the home front while his father was away.

Professor Haney taught 20th century United States history at UWW and specialized in World War II.  After receiving his Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin, Haney completed post-doctoral courses at the U.S. Military Academy (West Point) and the U.S. Army War College.  He had a long and distinguished career at the UWW, teaching and publishing many academic articles in books and magazines.  He is a popular speaker on many history topics today.

Haney’s book received many awards for biography and many positive national reviews.  The Historical Society heard from some World War II vets in November, so you won’t want to miss this talk about the home front and how one family coped with their closest member in the service.

Refreshments will be available.
