Fall Lecture Series
Condemned by His Own Words? The Tainted Career of Zebulon Brockway
Oct 17  7:00pm

The illustrious career of esteemed penal reformer Zebulon Brockway was marred by dark accusations and a full-blown investigation of improprieties in his role as Superintendent of the Elmira Reformatory.  Innocent in his own eyes and those of his supporters, was Brockway a saint or a sinner, or does the truth lie somewhere in between?  An examination of historical documents and Brockway's own words will shed some light on this intriguing question.  Presented by Dr. Carol Lenhart, Associate Professor of Criminal Justice, Elmira College.


Program is free and open to the general public.
