January 28 Brunch at the Ansley Club with Patrick Allit

Nearly 80 members and guests enjoyed a beautiful buffet luncheon on Sunday, January 28, 2018 at the Ansley Golf Club which was followed by an entertaining and interesting talk by Dr. Patrick Allitt.  Dr. Allitt was born, raised, educated in England and received his advanced degrees from U. of California Berkeley and Harvard University.  He is a professor of history at Emory University and the author of several books and a lecturer of seven Great Courses presentations.   Last summer Dr. Allitt went to England and spent several weeks researching interesting places to tour that are often overlooked by tour guides to England.  The material he presented will soon be found in a new Great Course presentation,  so ESU members and guests were treated to a preview of Dr. Allitt's "The Great Tours:  Britain."
