Cordell Hull to be topic of Historical Society meeting
State, national and international celebrity Cordell Hull will be the subject of this month’s Trousdale County Historical Society meeting.
Author Mark Dudney of Cookeville, Tenn., will be speaking to the group on the man who many call, “the father of the United Nations." His accomplishments included being the Secretary of State under Franklin D. Roosevelt, recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize, and a local lawyer and politician.
Hull had many Hartsville connections.
Not only did Hull practice law and walk the halls and courtroom of our courthouse, but he once dated a Hartsville woman. Her parents were convinced that he wouldn’t amount to anything and cut the relationship short!
Dudney is a lawyer himself, as well as an historian and writer. He had recently written a book on Hull, and will share his knowledge about this accomplished gentleman with the Historical Society.
In addition to his presentation, Dudney will have copies of his book for sale and will sign copies as they are purchased.
The meeting will be this Saturday, Nov. 10, at 2 p.m. at the Vaught Public Library. The public is invited to this and all Historical Society meetings.
