The Oak Ridge Heritage and Preservation Association is hosting journalist Clifton Truman Daniel, oldest grandson of former U.S. President Harry S. Truman, at a special speaking engagement at 7 p.m. Thursday at the New Hope Center.

Tickets to the lecture are $20, but the ORHPA is providing complimentary tickets to school teachers and their families, a press release said.

Daniel will discuss his grandfather’s decision to use the world’s first atomic weapons at the end of World War II and his recent trip to Japan.

The New Hope Center is at the Y-12 National Security Complex at 602 Scarboro Road.
