Both sessions are free and open to the public.

McWethy (pictured at top left), who is now senior media mentor at the Army's Command and General Staff College, will discuss his recent Nightline report on post-traumatic stress disorder. The talk, "America's Invisible Wounds," will take place in Watson Forum of the Pulliam Center for Contemporary Media. The event is sponsored by the Media Fellows Program. Maxwell Anderson IMA.jpg

At the same time, Maxwell Anderson will discuss "Safeguarding Antiquity's Future" a few blocks away in the auditorium of the Peeler Art Center. Two hours before the 4:15 p.m. lecture, from 2:15 to 3:15, Anderson -- formerly the curator of Greek and Roman art at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, will be available to meet with individuals at the Peeler Center's coffee shop. Maxwell Anderson's visit is presented by the department of classical studies and the Prindle Institute for Ethics.

John McWethy presented the commencement address at DePauw and received the McNaughton Medal for Public Service on May 18, 2003. Text, photos and video clips may be accessed in this previous story.

In 2002, McWethy received an honorary doctoral degree from DePauw.
