WEBINAR—Roger Ransom, Distinguished Professor of History and Economics, Emeritus, University of California, Riversidewill present a Zoom Webinar Sunday, October 18 at 2:00 p.m. Drawing on research completed for his 2018 book, Gambling on War: Confidence, Fear, and the Tragedy of the First World War, professor Ransom will explore inter-relationships of traumatic global events and their economic sources and consequences. As we struggle through the Covid-19 global event, Professor Ransom will explore the history of previous generations’ responses to such large-scale global events – and discuss the roles and uses of history itself in understanding such events.

Toward Peace is a multi-activity project of the Mission Inn Foundation exploring the history of the Inn’s founder, Frank A. Miller and his peace activism.  The project includes an exhibition and other public programs looking more deeply into Miller’s history – and exploring peace more broadly for us today as individuals and as communities.

This project was made possible with support from California Humanities through a Humanities for All Project Grant.
