Thomas Holcomb, the commandant of the Marine Corps who oversaw the dramatic increase in the size of the Corps during the years leading up to World War II, is the subject of the inaugural lecture in the Fall 2011 series sponsored by the Center for World War II Studies and Conflict Resolution at Brookdale Community College in Lincroft, Monmouth County, NJ.

Presenting the talk on Holcomb was David J. Ulbrich, Ph.D., historian for the US Army Engineer School at Ft. Leonard Wood, MO. Ulrich’s book about Holcomb, Preparing for Victory: Thomas Holcomb and the Making of the Modern Marine Corps, 1936-1943, was just published by the Naval Institute Press.

Lubetkin Global Communications is pleased to be producing video podcasts from many of the Center’s lectures this year. The productions continue a collaboration that dates back nearly 40 years between Steve Lubetkin and the Center’s director, Prof. Paul Zigo. As a student broadcaster at Monmouth College in the 1970s, Steve provided production support to Paul’s weekly radio program, “Speaking of Monmouth.”

This program series is seeking corporate sponsorship support, either for individual programs in the series or as a presenting sponsor for the entire lecture schedule.
