PSU Professor Emeritus of History, John Allen will speak on his recently published book FIS 100 Years of International Skiing, 1910-2010 at a brown bag luncheon on Wednesday February 9, 2011.
Dr. Allen’ most recent contribution to ski history won the Ullr Awar, given for a single outstanding contribution or several contributions to the historical record in book form, from the International Skiing History Association. Dr. Allen, and co-author Egon Theiner’s book, chronicles and analyzes how the International Ski Federation has managed modern skiing on the world stage. Superbly illustrated, this beautifully produced oversized book contains a century’s worth of stunning images.
The book event will begin at Noon on the Main Level of the Lamson Learning Commons. Copies of Dr. Allen’s book will be available for purchase and signing. Bring your lunch! Dessert and beverages will be provided.
