Forthcoming event: assessing Asquith's legacy

by Stephen Tall on April 19, 2008

Lib Dem Voice has already noted that we have just passed the century since Herbert Asquith became the last leader of a Liberal government. So we thought you might like to know of a lecture assessing his legacy which is taking place in Oxford next month. (If any LDV readers are thinking of coming, do drop me a line at stephen@libdemvoice.org.) Details as follows:

HH ASQUITH AND THE LIBERAL LEGACY – A LECTURE
An event jointly organized by the Bodleian Library and the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography to mark the centenary of Asquith’s 1908 Liberal Government
5:30pm, Thursday 15 May 2008

A lecture by Dr Lawrence Goldman followed by panel and open forum discussion. A selection of Asquith’s manuscripts – held by the Bodleian – will be on display in the Library’s Divinity School.
