On March 27, 2008, the Caroline Marshall Draughon Center for the Arts & Humanities of the College of Liberal Arts in Auburn University sponsored "Bartram's Travels," a lecture about the explorations of Alabama author William Bartram (profiled on This Goodly Land).

The lecture was given by Dr. John C. Hall as part of the Draughon Seminars in State and Local History. Read more about Dr. Hall and the Draughon Seminars here.

Dr. Hall's lecture was recorded and has been made available online.
