On March 5, 2009, Randolph-Macon College will host “An Evening with Newt Gingrich”
at 7:30 p.m. in Blackwell Auditorium, in the R-MC Center for Performing Arts, as

In his speech, "The Political Climate in Today's Changing World," Mr. Gingrich will
discuss the future of the Republican Party and give insight into how President Barack
Obama can lead lasting change during his administration.
Gingrich spent 20 years in Congress and was elected to become Speaker of the House
of Representatives from 1995 to 1999. He is best known for helping to create the
1994 “Contract with America” that helped the Republican Party regain control of
the House of Representatives for the first time in 40 years. An avid history buff,
Gingrich has authored several fiction and non-fiction books that have been placed
on the best seller list. His latest book, Real Change: From the World That Fails
to the World That Works (Regnery Publishing, January 2008), calls on politicians
to drop their own agendas and respond to the will of the people to bring about real
change. In addition to being an author, he founded The Gingrich Group, a consulting
firm focused on transformational change, and the Center for Health Transformation,
which is dedicated to the creation of a 21st century intelligent health system with
the purpose of saving lives and money.
Gingrich earned a Bachelor’s degree in history from Emory University and his Master’s
and Ph.D. in modern European history from Tulane University. He taught history and
environmental studies at West Georgia College for eight years before being elected
“An Evening with Newt Gingrich” is the first event sponsored by R-MC’s new Arthur

a Bachelor’s degree in physics from R-MC in 1947 and a degree in Medicine from VCU
