In honor of Constitution Day, a national initiative to increase awareness of the U.S. Constitution among federal government employees and students, Frostburg State University will present the panel discussion “The Supreme Court, the Constitution and America’s Future” on Tuesday, Sept. 13, at 7 p.m. on the fourth floor of the Lewis J. Ort Library on the FSU campus.
The moderator for the evening’s talk will be Dr. John Bowman, FSU associate provost. Panel members will include University political science faculty Dr. Stephen Hartlaub, Dr. Scott Johnson, Dr. David Lewis and Dr. Stephen Simpson, FSU provost. The discussion, which is open to the public, is sponsored by the Beall Institute for Public Affairs and the FSU Department of Political Science.
In addition to the educational discussion, the FSU Ort Library will feature several Constitution-related displays and exhibits throughout the month. Included will be information on three Marylanders – James McHenry, Daniel of St. Thomas Jenifer and Daniel Carroll – who served as delegates to the Constitutional Convention in 1787. Original 18th century correspondence from James McHenry and Daniel of St. Thomas Jenifer will be a featured part of the display from Sept. 9 - 23. From Sept. 9 through 19, interactive Web sites will exhibit the State of Maryland’s role during this most significant time in U.S. history. The audio/visual slideshow presentation, “Maryland’s Founding Fathers and the Constitution,” will highlight the three delegates and their contributions to the state, both prior to and after the signing of the Constitution. All displays will be on the third (main) floor of the Ort Library.
