Featuring Dale A. Jenkins | Tuesday, March 21st, 2023

8:00AM - 9:15AM  | Quail Valley River Club Porch

Join author and Harvard Alum ('60) Dale A. Jenkins for a fascinating and insightful discussion about WWII and how it might have been avoided. Drawing on his recently-released book, Diplomats and Admirals, Jenkins reveals the inside story of that fateful year and uncovers new insights into the Pacific naval battles that shaped the world—and the men behind them. 

Dale Jenkins has had a lifelong interest in the Navy and international affairs. He is a former US Navy officer who served on a destroyer in the Pacific and for a time was home-ported in Yokosuka, Japan. Pacific Fleet commitments took him to the Philippines, Taiwan, South Korea, Hong Kong, and Singapore. While on active duty, he was awarded the Navy/Marine Corps Expeditionary Medal. His business career was primarily in international banking, and he was also a staff director at the Council on Foreign Relations in New York. Dale currently serves on the Samuel Eliot Morison Committee of the Naval Order of the United Sates, New York, and as a Regional Director of the Naval War College Foundation. As a result of his active-duty experience and new revelations, Dale provides insight into the diplomacy and strategies of the Pacific region. He has degrees in history and business from Harvard and Columbia.

“Dale Jenkins’ fascinating and highly readable book offers startling new facts regarding what happened in key, early battles. Based on new research and previously overlooked documents, it provides valuable insight.”

JOHN F. LEHMAN, Former Secretary of the Navy

“Told with the greatest verve and authority . . . belongs on the shelf of anyone who is interested in the Second World War and who relishes a well-wrought tale of momentous events.”
RICHARD SNOW, author of A Measureless Peril:  The Fight for the Atlantic
