Join the Virginia Historical Society on Thursday, August 3rd, 12:00pm1:00pm, for a Banner Lecture by August Wallmeyer.



by August Wallmeyer

August Wallmeyer brings his unique perspectives on public policy issues in Virginia to bear on three “rural, poor, and largely unknown” areas of Virginia: Southwest, Southside, and the Eastern Shore. With his forty-plus years involvement with the Virginia General Assembly, Wallmeyer dissects conditions in the “extremes of Virginia” and offers his thoughts on practical steps to improve economic, social, and cultural conditions for the 10 percent of Virginians living there. The Extremes of Virginia compares and contrasts healthcare, health outcomes, education, illegal drug use, unemployment, job training, and economic development efforts throughout Virginia as a whole, concluding that the “extremes” areas are separated, unequal, and largely unknown to most Virginians.
