Join Professor David Gray Adler for an enlightening discussion on "Holding Government Accountable" on Tuesday, June 23, at 5 p.m. at the Weiser Depot.

The event is sponsored by the Weiser Architectural Preservation Committee and is free and open to the public.

Dr. Adler's presentation is made available with the help of the Idaho Humanities Council. This is Dr. Adler's second visit to Weiser. His talk in March of this year was well attended and many requested that the Architectural Committee bring him back for a return visit.

Dr. Adler is the Director of the Sun Valley Institute. He formerly served as James A. McClure Professor and Director of the James A. and Louise McClure Center for Public Policy Research at the University of Idaho, where he held a joint appointment in the Department of Political Science and the College of Law, in which he taught courses on the Constitution and the Supreme Court.

Before that, Adler was professor of political science and director of the Center for Constitutional Studies at Idaho State University.

A recipient of teaching, civic and writing awards, Adler has published in the leading journals of his field, and has lectured nationally and internationally on the Constitution and presidential power, including talks at more than 35 colleges and universities.

A frequent commentator on state and national events, Adler's lectures have aired on C-Span, and he has done scores of interviews with, among others, reporters from the New York Times, Washington Times, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, Los Angeles Times, Newsweek, National Review, Fox News, NPR, NBC, CNN and the BBC.

He is the recipient of the 2010 Idaho Humanities Council's, "Outstanding Achievement in the Humanities Award." He earned a BA. from Michigan State University and a Ph.D. from the University of Utah.
