Morning refreshments and lunch are included each day, giving attendees an opportunity to get to know each other and discuss the lectures and the subject matter presented.

Dr. Norman A. Enhorning, who passed away in September 2017, was a Distinguished Professor Emeritus at SUNY Adirondack and beloved teacher to thousands of students over the course of his tenure here. He will be remembered and missed for years to come. Among his many accomplishments, Dr. Enhorning won SUNY Adirondack’s Teacher of the Year award twice, served as a past president of both the Washington County and Warren County Historical Societies and was the first Social Science Division Chair at this institution.

Furthermore, he was an integral part of our Lecture and Lunch Series since it first began in 2003. An expert in American history and politics, Dr. Enhorning fascinated his audience with stories of U.S. presidents, Founding Fathers, political parties and more. On some occasions, Dr. Enhorning would even host two lectures in the same series, and he was always willing to fill in if a scheduled lecturer was unable to present. Just days before he passed, he presented at our Fall 2017 Lecture and Lunch Series. Moreover, he had been scheduled to teach a course called English History As Depicted in Film, which quickly became the first Continuing Education class of the semester to reach full enrollment and require a waiting list, due to Dr. Enhorning’s renown. The SUNY Adirondack Board of Trustees has passed a resolution renaming the  Lecture and Lunch Series in his honor.

Dr. Enhorning earned Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from the University of Connecticut and completed his PhD at Rutgers University. He taught history at SUNY Adirondack full-time for 39 years, then worked as an adjunct professor until 2013. He was an often-requested guest lecturer in history classes on campus, and despite retiring in 2003, remained an enthusiastic and active member of the SUNY Adirondack community. Dr. Enhorning was an inspiring instructor and well-loved by his students.
