EAST LIVERPOOL — Kent State-East Liverpool’s fall “Speakers Series” concludes this week as Stephen Papalas shares his knowledge about Benjamin Franklin’s impact on American society at noon Thursday in the Quiet Study Lounge in Purinton Hall.

The public is invited to this free lecture.

Franklin is one of Papalas’ favorite historical figures. “He contributed more to America than many of our founding fathers,” Papalas said. “Franklin was the greatest and most famous scientist of his day. As a successful businessman and inventor, he devoted his life to improving the lives of everyone around him. Franklin has been viewed as a giant among men, but some of his actions show that he was only as human as you and me.”

Papalas has been an adjunct history instructor on the East Liverpool Campus for more than 25 years and has presented numerous public lectures on campus, including several about the Holocaust.
