Terman

Tabor College Emeritus Biology Professor Max Terman, author of ?Hiram?s Honor: Reliving Private Terman?s Civil War,? will be the featured speaker at the fall season?s first ?60+? Learning in Retirement Program.

The session will begin at 9:45 a.m. Monday, Sept. 21, in the Wohlgemuth Music Education Center on the Tabor College campus.

Terman wrote the novel based on the Civil War experiences of his great-uncle Hiram Terman, including 17 months as a prisoner of war.

The cover of the book reads, ?From the numbing terror of the battlefield to the grinding misery of the prison camps?in this riveting first person account, you are there!?

The project combined Terman?s meticulousness as a scientist with the imaginative challenge of being a first-time novelist. He started researching the story in 1999 and made it a full-time pursuit after retiring in 2006 from Tabor?s faculty.

Fees for the program are $3 a session or $15 per semester ($28 per couple). Registration and discount cards for lunch in the cafeteria will be available at the door during the half-hour before the meeting.
