On Tuesday, Feb. 5, 2019, Harvard Business School historian and professor Nancy Koehn was the Friends of the LBJ Library's An Evening With guest. She spoke about moral leadership and her book, Forged in Crisis: The Making of Five Courageous Leaders, with LBJ Foundation President and CEO Mark K. Updegrove.

Nancy Koehn is a historian at the Harvard Business School where she holds the James E. Robison chair of Business Administration. Koehn's research focuses on how leaders, past and present, craft lives of purpose, worth, and impact. Her recent book, Forged in Crisis: The Making of Five Courageous Leaders, is a historical narrative spotlighting five masters of crisis: polar explorer Ernest Shackleton; President Abraham Lincoln; legendary abolitionist Frederick Douglass; Nazi-resisting clergyman Dietrich Bonhoeffer; and environmental crusader Rachel Carson. A Phi Beta Kappa graduate of Stanford University, Koehn earned a Master of Public Policy from Harvard's Kennedy School of Government before taking her MA and Ph.D. in History from Harvard.

The Evening With speaker series is generously sponsored by St. David's HealthCare, the Ford Foundation, the Moody Foundation, and Tito's Handmade Vodka.
