Michael W. Flamm, Ph.D., OWU professor of history, presents “Axis Sally: Ohio Wesleyan’s Most Notorious and Least Understood Alum.” During World War II, an American woman broadcast Nazi propaganda to Allied troops, who dubbed her “Axis Sally.” Her real name was Mildred Gillars, and two decades earlier she had attended Ohio Wesleyan. Three decades later, she returned to Delaware to receive her degree. Hear her tragic-but-true story from Flamm, author of “In the Heat of the Summer: The New York Riots of 1964 and the War on Crime.” His presentation represents OWU’s 2017 Joseph and Edith Vogel Lecture sponsored by the Department of History. Admission is free. Learn more at www.owu.edu/history.
