pattengale-jerry1IWU History Professor and Assistant Provost Dr. Jerry Pattengale will appear on H2, a spinoff of the History Channel, as a guest on the program 101 Objects That Changed The World, Saturday night, January 12 at 10 p.m. Eastern Time.

“Our lives are so full of stuff these days that the average object is instantly forgettable,” observes the program description. “But, when fate and history combine, even the simplest of objects become infused with destiny–so much so that they actually change the world.”

Also involved in the program was Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay, owner of the original manuscript from Jack Kerouac’s novel On the Road. IWU is a sponsor of the Indianapolis Colts.
