PETER KURTH was born in Oklahoma in 1953. He is a graduate of the University of Vermont, where he earned departmental honors in English and Theatre. His first book, Anastasia: The Riddle of Anna Anderson, was an international bestseller and made into an NBC television miniseries. Kurth’s biography of anti-fascist journalist Dorothy Thompson, American Cassandra won the Frank Luther Mott-Kappa Tau Alpha Research Award as the best book about journalism of 1990.

In 1995-96 Kurth was the author of Tsar: The Lost World of Nicholas and Alexandra and co-author (with Eleanor Lanahan) of Zelda: An Intimate Portrait, a pictorial biography of Zelda Fitzgerald. His latest book was a biography of Isadora Duncan, Isadora: A Sensational Life.


In 1989 Kurth was diagnosed with HIV infection, an event that unavoidably changed his life and altered the direction of his writing. His commentary on AIDS issues has been heard on National Public Radio, and he was "Lazarus" columnist for POZ magazine. His work has appeared in a variety of national publications, including "Vanity Fair," "Condé Nast Traveler," "Forbes FYI," "The New York Times Book Review," "The New York Observer," "Cosmopolitan," and "Harper's Bazaar." He is a contributing writer for "Salon" and was “Crank Call” columnist for Vermont’s "Seven Days," for which he won an award for outstanding commentary from the Association of Alternative Newsweeklies.

Daphne Larkin, director of media relations and community affairs, will present on Norwich University as a community resource with an emphasis on cybersecurity. This includes learning opportunities such as Norwich’s Annual Cyber Summit, CISSP certification, drone license exam prep course, and the free GenCyber camp. Daphne will share her experiences of working with students and faculty who – as the only university involved – supported cybersecurity at Super Bowl 50, which was held at the country’s most technically advanced stadium, Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif. Entering into its third century of educating tomorrow’s ethical leaders, Norwich today is a national leader in cybersecurity education and research. Norwich offers undergraduate and graduate programs; civic engagement with Vermont businesses; and designs and implements tools to protect federal critical infrastructure. Norwich is a community resource also in the many free lecture series it offers, symposia and other programs. There are opportunities to engage via Norwich’s five centers of excellence in the areas of sustainability, cyber (as noted), leadership and change, civic engagement, and peace and war. Daphne will touch on who Norwich is structurally and how we serve Vermont from prospective students to college students to businesses/government and internationally.
