Boyne District Library Community Room

Join us for a sneak preview of Dr. Colburn’s new documentary film on the Eisenhower election and presidency.  His program will be a two-hour special on television; however for CCHPS, this special preview will be limited to the first hour – on why Ike ran, and how he won. Dr. Colburn invites you to enliven the presentation with some good “Ike” tales.  You may even be invited to be included in this film, which is scheduled to be aired on public TV in the fall.  Too young to remember?  No matter your age, everyone is invited to attend this preview, to learn about one of our nation’s most notable presidents, and share views on this history-based documentary program.  George A. Colburn, Ph.D., is President and Director of Operations for Starbright Media Corporation. His best known national television credit is as SMC’s writer and producer of a major documentary series on Dwight D. Eisenhower’s military and political careers, 1941 – 1961. Produced in association with Gancie Television, and entitled “The Eisenhower Legacy,” the five-hour series was hosted by Gen. Colin L. Powell. Dr. Colburn’s credits as an independent producer include more than two dozen national, media-based educational programs, linked to major documentary series. For more information please call 231-582-5326.  This program is free and open to the public.
