A Dakota Wesleyan University professor will present a talk Thursday at Dakota State University on the Mundt-Nixon association. Dr. Sean Flynn will be at the Karl Mundt Library Thursday evening at 7:00 for his talk titled “From HUAC to EROS: How the Mundt-Nixon Association Impacted South Dakota and the Nation”.
Flynn has written four books, including “Chief, Marine Corps Warrior” a military biography of his father, a decorated Korean War POW and one of the few aviators of American Indian descent to fly combat missions in World War II and Korea. His most recent book, “Without Reservation: Benjamin Reifel and American Indian Acculturation,” explores the career of Ben Reifel, one of Senator Karl Mundt’s closest colleagues and the only Lakota elected to the U.S. Congress.
Flynn is currently writing a book about the history of the New Right movement in the Midwest and plans to write a new biography of Senator Mundt in the future.
