May 13, 20123

President Richard M. Nixon welcomed home Vietnam War POWs with a White House dinner in May, 1973. Fast forward 40 years and on May 16, Cal State Fullerton students of Benjamin Cawthra, associate professor of history will present their research on that historic dinner at an invitation-only event at the Nixon Library and Museum. “Students from my graduate seminar in public history class have worked all semester with the Nixon presidential archives on research for a series of small exhibitions to be produced by the Nixon Library and Museum during the Nixon Centennial,” Cawthra said. Among the topics was the POW dinner.
