On November 7, 2017 Professor Roger Chickering delivered the 16th George G. Windell Memorial Lecture in European History at the Earl K. Long Library on the University of New Orleans campus. 

Presented by the Department of History & Philosophy and Center Austria, the Windell Lecture was created in 1983 in honor of former UNO history department faculty and modern European historian Professor George G. Windell. 

Professor Chickering spoke about the fateful breakdown of communications between the United States and Germany that ultimately led to the US entry into the conflict in 1917.
