World War IWorld War I Symposium

  • Novemember 6-8 2014
  • Yavapai College, Verde Valley Campus: M-137
  • For more information and full schedule: www.yc.edu/wwi

In recognition of Veterans Day, the public is invited to attend Yavapai College’s "The First World War Symposium: A Series of Interdisciplinary Lectures Presented by the Faculty of Yavapai College." The lecture series runs November 6-8 at both the Prescott and Clarkdale campuses, and attendance is free.

The symposium commemorates 100 years since the start of World War I, in 1914. Four years later, a cease-fire was enacted on November 11. U.S. President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed the first anniversary of November 11 a celebration of this armistice as a day to reflect upon the service of those who sacrificed for their country during the First World War.

In addition to educational lectures and presentations from Yavapai College professors, The First World War Symposium will feature screenings of the films "All Quiet on the Western Front" and "Johnny Got His Gun," as well as a Master Chorale performance directed by Dennis Houser.

Lecture topics include "Causes, Course, and Consequences," "Gas Warfare in World War I" and "The Influenza Pandemic of 1918-1919." For a complete schedule, including descriptions of the lectures and biographies of the presenters, go to www.yc.edu/wwi.

Presentations and film screenings take place in Building 19, Room 147 of the Prescott campus (1100 E. Sheldon Street) and Building M, Room 137 of the Clarkdale campus (601 Black Hills Drive).

Wings of Silver

Vi, and 1,073 other women with her same sense of adventure, volunteered for a duty that would help free up male pilots for service in the battles overseas. By joining the WASP (Women Airforce Service Pilots) Vi helped ferry fighter planes from the factories, and ended flying enough trips in her two years of service to have circumnavigated the world 55 times. Flying 19 different types of aircraft, this 93-year-old firecracker of a woman tells of never realizing she would be an inspiration to anyone, but she was - and is!

At 89 she was the oldest person to skydive with the elite Army Golden Knights (beating out President George H.W. Bush by four years!) and piloted a P-51 at 94. Vi and the women of the WASP are an inspiration to anyone they meet!

Letters To Defiance

During WWII Corporal Francis Seibert of Defiance, Ohio was stationed in Amarillo, Texas as an Air Force instructor training men on the instrument systems of the B-17 and B-29 bombers. This being his first time away from home, he wrote to his family almost daily. To make his letters “more exciting” he began to illustrate the envelopes with cartoons. His mother saved all 614 of these letters and envelopes.

This documentary takes the 82-year-old Seibert through a historic journey as he revisits those letters 60 years later. Francis shared the holidays away from home, and also his impressions of the dropping of the first Atomic Bomb. For a young man of only twenty-one, Corporal Seibert had extraordinary vision of what the future of the Atomic Bomb would mean to the world. He knew that it would very likely turn out to be instrumental in ending the war and saving thousands of lives, but it scared him. Through all these letters the underlying message is how important family is. How we take for granted what we have until it is taken away from us, and how often it takes a tragic situation to express how we really feel.

In Times of War: Ray Parker

RAY PARKER was working at the Los Angeles Examiner when suddenly all of the teletype machine bells started madly ringing. It was December 7th, 1941 and the Japanese had just attacked Pearl Harbor. Ray joined the army and was on his 10th mission when his plane was shot down behind enemy lines. Ray survived the parachute fall only to be quickly captured by the Germans. Interned at a Prison camp, he was approached by the American commanding officer and asked to secretly edit the underground newspaper for the 9,000 captured soldiers there. Using information received via a hidden radio, his paper spread hope through reports of the D-Day invasion and the Allies march on Germany until he was caught by his captors only one month before the war ended.

ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

James Perey

Recently, someone posted on the YC Facebook page, challenging the YC Deans to the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. James Perey accepted and did it on the Verde Valley Campus on Wednesday, September 3rd on the grassy knoll.

A Verde Valley Campus student, Angel Gutierrez, volunteered to do the honors.

The Ice Bucket Challenge, sometimes called the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, is an activity involving dumping a bucket of ice water on someone's head to promote awareness of the disease amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and encourage donations to research.

The challenge dares nominated participants to be filmed having a bucket of ice water poured on their heads and then nominating others to do the same. A common stipulation is that nominated participants have 24 hours to comply or forfeit by way of a charitable financial donation.
