Video: Former Gov. Jim Edgar addresses leadership in crisis

March  13, 2013

Former Illinois Gov. Jim Edgar addressed a crowd in Wallenberg Hall on Monday, March 11. The topic of Edgar's lecture was “Leadership in Times of Crisis.”

Gov. Edgar's lecture was made possible by support from Augustana's Ellwood F. Curtis Family Lectureship in Public Affairs. Ellwood Curtis enjoyed a 42-year distinguished career with Deere & Co., which included service as president and vice chairman. Curtis also served as co-chairman of Augustana College's Agenda For Leadership Campaign, a successful program which resulted in the construction of the College Center.

The endowment was established by his estate and is used to fund lectures in public affairs.
