James Crisp

Crisp, a Henrietta native, is a nationally recognized and award-winning historian who has established himself as an authority on the Texas Revolution and the U.S./Mexico borderlands. His book, “Sleuthing the Alamo: Davy Crockett’s Last Stand and Other Mysteries of the Texas Revolution”, was awarded the T.R. Fehrenbach Book Award from the Texas Historical Commission.

The book has put Crisp at the center of the ongoing debate concerning Crockett’s demise and the myth and history of the battle of the Alamo. This work rehabilitates and reforms the image and reputation of Juan Seguín, Tejano hero of the Texas Revolution — restoring Hispanics, “the Tejanos,” to their place in the history of the Texas Revolution. He has contributed to PBS and History Channel documentaries on the Alamo.

The next speaker will be syndicated columnist Dan Thomasson at 7 p.m. April 2 at Akin Auditorium. His columns appear in the Wichita Falls Times Record News. His topic will be “News from the War Zone; a Look at the Washington Battleground.”

The Speakers and Issues Series began in 2001 with the idea of bringing informed and creative speakers to the academic and municipal communities. Since then, more than 20 speakers have come to MSU from all corners of the country. The inaugural speaker for the series was Russian poet Yevgeny Yevtushenko in 2002. Other past speakers include MSU alumnus and physician Dr. Mark Puder; forensic pathologist Dr. Marcela Fierro; arborist William Bryant Logan; biologist E.O. Wilson; Native American poet Jim Barnes; Texas poet Walt McDonald; MSU professors James Hoggard, Everett Kindig, Charles Olson and Michael Collins; musicians Eurah White and Jimmie Dale Gilmore; and Wichita Falls physician Dr. Eid Mustafa.

The series is supported by Elizabeth Bourland Hawley, the Libra Foundation, MSU’s Prothro-Yeager College of Humanities and Social Sciences, the Wichita Falls Times Record News, KCCU-FM NPR Radio, and KFDX-TV3.

Admission is free; donations are welcome. For more information, contact Dr. Claudia Montoya at (940) 397-4259 or visit www.mwsu.edu/sis.
