Dr. de Blij's 2006 Visit

The Bridgewater campus is still buzzing about Dr. Harm de Blij's recent visit to deliver the Class of '42 Lecture. The current revival of geography at BSC can be traced at least in part to an earlier visit by Dr. de Blij. In 2006 he made a brief visit in which he spoke in two classes and then attended a reception in President Mohler-Faria's office. He is shown here presenting a copy of his Atlas of North America to the president.
Following the reception, the president's chief of staff, Mr. Bryan Baldwin, interviewed Dr. de Blij -- along with department members Dr. Domingo and Dr. Hayes-Bohanan -- about the importance of geographic education. Learn more about that visit and hear the interview on bPOD.
