Hogg Lecture


On September 27, 2013  UK Librareis hosted a kickoff event in the Toyota Reading Room in the  second-floor rotunda of the William T. Young Library.  (Home of the Scott/Greenslade World War II and Soviet materials collection.)  Gordon Hogg, Academic Liaison for Russian & Eastern Studies, and Director of the Special Collections Library presented a history of UK Libraries’ unique Scott Soviet Collection, which included an introduction to the Scotts’ propaganda posters, as well as a travelogue through many years examining the development and meaning of the various flags representing, in turn, Russia, the Soviet Union and its republics, and the nations of the post-Soviet era.
