A biographer of President Dwight D. Eisenhower is scheduled to speak in Abilene.

Historian Jean Edward Smith, author of the book "Eisenhower in War and Peace," is leading a discussion Thursday evening at the Eisenhower Presidential Library and Museum.

The Salina Journal reports that Smith's book examines Eisenhower's journey from Abilene to West Point, through World War II, the presidency and later.

Smith has been a faculty member at the University of Toronto and Marshall University, and is a senior scholar in the history department at Columbia University. A book signing will follow the discussion.
