Hiking Paris with Thomas Jefferson

Le Centre Francophone at Webster University is pleased to invite you to a lecture,

"Hiking Paris with Thomas Jefferson," by Carl J. Ekberg, Ph.D. This lecture is in English.


Thomas Jefferson was an American minister in Paris for five years: from 1784 - 1789. His time in Paris was a major influence on his thinking, his aesthetics, and his politics. Many people find great pleasure and benefit from considering Jefferson's reactions to

the City of Light.


Dr. Ekberg is a well-known colonial historian. He is co-author with Sharon Person of "St. Louis Rising." One of his best-known works is Colonial Ste. Genevieve. He has been tracing Thomas Jefferson in Paris for 30 years.
