In recognition of the 100th anniversary of World War I, Douglas Biggs, a native of Ames and a graduate of Iowa State University, will discuss the impact of The Great War for Iowa State and its returning veterans.

Veterans Day Speaker

Douglas Biggs is a professor of history at the University of Nebraska-Kearney. He spent much of his youth exploring the ISU campus and later earned both a BA and an MA in history from the university before completing his PhD at the University of Minnesota.

Biggs's interest in Ames and ISU history has led to several publications and public lectures on such topics as the Dinky, the university during World War II, and the early years of the Iowa State College football team.
