Memories of Duke and Saving JFK

Saturday, 17 April, 2-3:15pm, Perkins Library, Biddle Rare Book Room
Lieutenant Commander (retired) Ted Robinson '40 is a born storyteller who will reminisce with Alex Roland, professor of history, about working his way through Duke during the Great Depression, winning a commission in the Navy, and serving in Torpedo Boat Squadron 6 with John F. Kennedy in World War II. Robinson's memoir, Water in my Veins: the Pauper Who Helped Save a President, recounts his part in rescuing Kennedy and other surviving crew of PT 109 after it was rammed by a Japanese destroyer. Sponsored by the Duke Alumni Association and Duke University Libraries.  The program is open to everyone.
