Dr. Don B. Weser, professor of chemistry at Frostburg State University, will present a lecture on "Hawaii, Land of Mystery, Enchantment and Volcanoes," Thursday, Sept. 26, at 7:30 p.m. in the FSU Cordts Physical Education Center's Leake Room.
Hawaii is a land of great mystery, intrigue and astounding diversity of cultures and peoples. Its history is rooted in legends and stories that have been passed from one generation to another, and much of that interest and superstition still resides there. Weser's presentation will focus on Hawaii's fascination both underwater and far above sea level, from its sea life to its volcanoes, which leads to a realm vastly different from that encountered in the continental United States.
Weser was given the opportunity to explore many facets of the islands through the Chautauqua program, sponsored by the National Science Foundation. He has taught at FSU for 25 years.
Volcanic samples and artifacts will be on display following the lecture. Refreshments will be served prior to the talk. For more information, contact Weser at (301) 687-4157.
