Gerald Bazer, Dean of Arts and Sciences at Owens Community College, has been named to the Ohio Humanities Council Speakers Bureau. As a member of the Bureau, he will be addressing audiences across the State of Ohio.

He will give three presentations all centered on his study of the American Presidency: Great American Presidents, The Most Consequential Actions of American Presidents and United States Presidents from Ohio.

During the past several years, Bazer has been a member of the Owens Community College Speakers Bureau addressing many Northwest Ohio community groups and service organizations. He has published a number of essays including several Saturday Essays in The Blade.

"I am very honored by this opportunity and excited by the occasion to begin speaking to groups beyond Northwest Ohio," Bazer said.

Bazer originated the Great American Presidents course at Owens, which he has taught along with a course in American Government.

Bazer resides in Sylvania Township with his wife, Ellen, a second grade teacher. Their son, Mark, is an editor for the Chicago Tribune Syndicate, their daughter, Nicki, is a law clerk for the federal judge in Bridgeport, Connecticut.

The Ohio Humanities Council is the state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities. The Council's speakers bureau includes nearly 30 speakers from across the state who make presentations in the humanities history, literature, philosophy, law, the classics to explore the meaning of community in the past and now.

Any non-profit group such as a service club, library, local historical society, school, civic organization, labor union, senior center, professional association, or church may request a speaker.
