Holiday Celebration & Dinner Meeting

December 3, 2019

Featured Speaker:  Dr. Gordon Patterson

"Look Who's Coming to Dinner!"

Explore the checkered legacy and economic impact of that pesky, little, uninvited dinner guest, the mosquito with researcher and master story-teller, Gordon Patterson.  Be entertained by true stories of how this little, pesky creature has influenced the history of the Space Coast and others around the world.  Learn what the future holds ….

A professor at Florida Institute of Technology, School of Arts and Communication, Gordon Patterson is a master story-teller and a specialist in environmental history, modern European intellectual history (German and Austrian) with an interest in the history of science and technology, and Florida history.  His educational background includes a B.S. from Northwestern University and a Ph.D. from the University of California, Los Angeles in 1979.  His research activities focus on vector control and the history of mosquito control.  Professor Patterson is currently at work on a history of vector and mosquito control between 1970 and present.

Dr. Patterson has received six awards from the National Endowment for the Humanities. In 1998 and 2003, he taught the summer semesters in Seoul, Korea, and Misawa, Japan as part of the University of Maryland's Asian division. He later received a Fulbright Travel Study Grant in 2004 for research in Malaysia and Indonesia. His professional experience includes past chair of the social science section of the Florida Academy of Science, a former director of the Florida Historical Society, former director of the Florida Humanities Council, and past member of Board of Advisers to Florida Defenders of the Environment. In 1994, Dr. Patterson was named to the panel of judges for the Eugene M. Emme Astronautical Literature Award, given by the American Astronautical Society.
