Maurie McInnis to give McGregor Distinguished Lecture

October 27, 2017

Maurie McInnis, co-founder of the Jefferson's University: the Early Life project (JUEL) and executive vice president and provost at The University of Texas at Austin, has been invited to give the Tracy W. and Katherine W. McGregor Distinguished Lecture in American History. This lecture is sponsored by the University of Virginia Library. The lecture will be at 4pm on Wednesday, November 8, 2017, in the Albert and Shirley Small Special Collections Library. Space is limited, so an RSVP email to McGregoryLecture2017@virginia.edu is advised.

Dr. McInnis partnered with Associate Professor Kirt von Daacke to start the JUEL project with IATH in 2012. The project looks at primary documents and images from the first decades after Thomas Jefferson founded UVa. The project includes 3D reconstructions of the Academical Village circa 1827.
