Program on Panama Canal at Wolfeboro Library

WOLFEBORO — George Stosur will present the program "Panama Canal: From Moving Mountains to Killing Mosquitoes" on Thursday, August 7, at the Wolfeboro Public Library at 7 p.m. The program is free and open to all.

In the history of building the Panama Canal, the world's most important shortcut between two oceans, it is arguable whether moving mountains or killing mosquitos was more difficult. This presentation will range from the French initial attempt, and eventual bankruptcy, to the American successful completion of the canal. Also covered will be the man who "spoke softly but carried a big stick," Dr. Gorgas with his mosquito campaign, Walter Reed of Washington fame, George Goethals whose tough military management completed the canal under budget and ahead of schedule, and Woodrow Wilson who triggered the last big explosive that marked the completion of the construction.

This herculean effort was completed 100 years ago with the first ship sailing the Panama Canal on August 14, 1914. The lecture will also cover the current work to build an even larger Panama Canal and will include many photographs and diagrams.

George Stosur recently retired from the U.S. Department of Energy where he directed research related to global energy resources and climate change. He is now a part-time teacher and speaker on world energy issues, maritime sciences, environmental problems, and unusual earth-sea phenomena.

For more information call Cindy Scott at the Wolfeboro Public Library at 569-2428 or visit www.wolfeborolibrary.org.
