Dr. Jim Hodge– Dispatches From the South:

TheLetters of an Ohio Farm Boy, A Private In Sherman's Army

Whether describing the drudgery of camp life or reporting on the terror of battle, letters written by soldiers during the Civil War have been instrumental in understanding this divisive era of America’s past.

Our speaker this month is Dr. Jim Hodge, who was born and raised on an Ohio farm, and is a descendant from the Ohio farm boy he discusses in his presentation.

Dr. Hodge earned his PhD in Chemistry at Penn State University, and worked 35 years as a research scientist for DuPont. Jim worked on DuPont products such as Dacron, Kevlar and Nomex, but his most "visible" accomplishment was the development and production of the bright orange Nomex fabric for the NASA astronaut shuttle crew's space suits.

After retiring from DuPont, our speaker worked five years for the US Dept of Justice as an expert witness and consultant in patent litigation.

We hope you will join us at the County Seat Restaurant in Powhatan, for this month’s presentation.
