Throughout human history we find a few attractive individuals with potential for destruction. Because of personal greed, desire for power, or passion for an ideology, they caused damage which often altered the course of history. In this course, we will study several of these fascinating but deadly characters, including the original Dracula, Rasputin the Russian Monk, Blackbeard the pirate, the spy Mata Hari, and the women who loved Adolf Hitler. Not a course for the faint of heart.

INSTRUCTOR: Margaret Watson received undergraduate and master’s degrees from the University of Michigan. She pursued further graduate study in historical and literary research at the Ohio State University where she taught for several years. She is now Professor Emerita from Quinsigamond Community College after serving for thirty-six years as faculty member and administrator.
