The inaugural Evelyn Streng Lecture in Contemporary Issues will be given by Texas native Jan Jarboe Russell, author of “The Train to Crystal City,” on Tues., Nov. 14, at 7:00 pm in Jackson Auditorium at Texas Lutheran University. Russell's book tells the story of a secret World War II internment camp that was located in Crystal City, Texas. From 1942 to 1948, thousands of German, Japanese and Italian immigrants and children, many of them born in America, lived behind barbed wire in the 290-acre camp located at the southern tip of Texas, approximately 35 miles from the Mexican border. This free event is open to the public and sponsored by the Brown Cultural Enrichment Endowment Fund.
