Lecture – Finding Pete: Rediscovering the Brother I Lost in Vietnam

John Gallagher ’12 writes in to let us know about an interesting lecture that will be happening tonight:

findingpetePeter Morse Hunting ’63 was the first Wesleyan graduate killed in the Vietnam War. He and his youngest sister Jill were products of a family that valued service. At Wesleyan, Pete found the intellectual framework for his values and the preparation for his next step in life. As a civilian volunteer in Vietnam he analyzed the U.S. military presence as it shifted from advisory role to combat force and the shifting currents of attitudes among Vietnamese. Pete’s life inspired Jill to work for peace, but first she had to come to terms with his death. Join her as she discusses her quest to explore the mystery of Pete’s death and how it resulted in a book 44 years later.
