History Begins at Home: A Personal Journey By Charles F Bryan, JR

Presenter: 
Charles F Bryan, JR
Duration: 
(00:56:33)

In this autobiographical lecture, Dr. Bryan reflects on the field of public history as it developed during the course of his own career. In 1988, he was appointed as President and CEO of the Virginia Historical Society. During his tenure, Dr. Bryan oversaw fund-raising campaigns that raised more than $110 million. These efforts resulted in quadrupling the size of the museum’s headquarters building and a significant expansion of educational programs statewide.

In November 2008, Dr. Bryan retired and was named president emeritus by the board of trustees.
