“Mr. Research” offering service for students of local alums

Do you have children or grandchildren in need of assistance with research for school projects?

Hoosier Novels on the Big Screen is one of many topics which Mizzou alum Dan O’Brien has studied over the years.

dan_obrien-200As a special benefit to local Missouri alums, O’Brien, aka “Mr. Research” is is offering his help to students of Indiana Mizzou Crew members. Dan has helped students with papers or projects from fourth graders to college grad students with topics ranging from the aforementioned Hoosier novels/films to Brazil’s underrated contributions to the World War II effort. He has also assisted with press kits for major motion pictures including fact-based films such as Ron Howard’s Rush and George Clooney’s The Monuments Men. He also provided special research assistance during the filming of Terry George’s The Promise, a World War I drama starring Christian Bale (which completed filming recently in Europe).

O’Brien is also co-author of the books MizzouRah: Memorable Moments in Missouri Football History and Mark May’s Tales of the Redskins.

And, as a native Hoosier, he has a working knowledge of Indiana history, which could receive greater attention in schools during the coming year since 2016 is Indiana’s Bicentennial year.

On Feb. 10 at the Greenwood Library O’Brien will give his presentation of Hoosier Novels on the Big Screen. Click for more information.
