Meet William McGaughey

William McGaughey is author of the book Five Epochs of Civilization and creator of this website. He is interested in meeting persons who are interested in world history and, in particular, how the story of humanity should be written.

You can meet Mr. McGaughey by attending annual conferences of the International Society for the Comparative Study of Civilizations (ISCSC), an organization founded by Arnold Toynbee and other scholars in Salzburg, Austria, in 1961. He is the prospective chair of this organization’s annual conference in Hartford, Connecticut, in 2012.

Mr. McGaughey would welcome an invitation to travel to your college, school, or other organization to talk about this subject from his perspective or to engage in an open discussion of history with interested persons. He speaks English and has some acquaintance with German and French. His wife is fluent in English and Chinese.

Mr. McGaughey would ask for a fee of $250 per day plus expenses for local transportation, food, and lodging. For a limited time, he would be willing to assume most or all of the cost of traveling to your city by air. The financial arrangements should be agreed to in advance.

If interested, please inquire
