Entertainer, writer and history buff Curt Locklear of The Woodlands is the program presenter for the Tuesday, Feb. 20 quarterly meeting of the Fort Bend County Historical Commission.
The meeting will take place in the main meeting room of the Gus George Law Enforcement Academy, 1521 Eugene Heiman Circle in Richmond, beginning at 3 p.m. The meeting and program are open to the public and free of charge.
Locklear's powerpoint-aided topic will be the Civil War, viewed from both sides of the conflict, with emphasis on the home front. Locklear noted that he has written and published two novels in an intended trilogy about the war, Asunder and Splintered, "with heroes on both sides."
"I’m an education consultant, award-winning short story writer, I play banjo and guitar and tell corny jokes," added Locklear, who retired from Texas public schools after 23 years as a principal. "I love to be with people."
