GVSU professor to speak on U.S. Indian Policy During the Adams Administration

GRAND HAVEN--Dr. Sean O’Neill, history professor at Grand Valley State University, will present “U.S. Indian Policy During the Adams Administration” on Wednesday, July 6 at 7:00 p.m. in the Tri-Cities Historical Museum, 1 South Harbor Drive.

O’Neill will be speaking about U.S. Indian policy during the Adam’s administration. He will also be discussing the Battle of Fallen Timbers and the Louisiana Purchase that occurred both before and after his administration and overshadowed his term as president.

He is a Grand Haven resident and teaches American Indian studies, as well as Colonial America, and Social Studies Education. O’Neill has a BA from University of California, Berkeley and a Masters and doctorate from University of California, Santa Barbara.

O’Neill’s discussion complements the John Adams Unbound exhibit at the Loutit District Library. The traveling exhibit is on display at the Loutit District Library (LDL) through August 5. The nine-panel exhibit is based on the personal library of John Adams willed by Adams to the people of Massachusetts and deposited in the Boston Public Library in 1894. This remarkable collection of books provides first-hand insight into how John Adams shaped American history and how he was shaped through his lifelong dedication to reading and books.

The John Adams Unbound traveling exhibition was organized by the Boston Public Library and the America Library Association and made possible by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities: great ideas brought to life-book collection.
