Brown Bag Series - “Fire in the Big House”

Friday, January 26, 2018

What do criminals, terrorists, and gunslingers have in common? They are all areas of interest to our next Brown Bag Lecturer, Dr. Mitchel Roth, Criminal Justice professor at Sam Houston State University. He’ll speak about “Fire in the Big House,” the forgotten story of the Ohio penitentiary fire of 1930, America’s deadliest prison disaster, and its aftermath at 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday, January 26, 2018. Dr. Roth is a prolific author and has written books on the history of Criminal Justice, war journalism, the Texas Department of Public Safety, and Sam Houston State University's College of Criminal Justice. Attendees may bring a brown bag lunch. Lunch time begins at 11:30 a.m. and the lecture will begin at noon at the Huntsville Public Library. Beverages will be provided, and admission is free. For more information contact Mary at 936-291-5471.
