The youngest son of Thomas and Hannah Lee of Stratford Hall always made an impression on those he encountered in his several areas of expertise. To some he was a wrongly maligned patriot, to others a paranoid misfit—who was the real man behind these divided opinions? Join Dr. Gordon Blaine Steffey, Barbara Boyle Lemon '57 and William J. Lemon Professor of Religion and Philosophy at Randolph College, as he commemorates the birthday of the man Benjamin Franklin called “that restless genius,” Arthur Lee.
