Dr. Edwin Dover
Political Science Department
Western Oregon University
Friday, November 7, 2014
On Friday, November 7, Salem City Club welcomes back Ed Dover, Professor of Political Science at Western Oregon University, to discuss 2014 general election.  Dr. Dover’s post-election analyses of local, state and national political contests have enlightened and entertained City Club audiences through several election cycles.  
Dover has taught political science for 37 years.  Prior to joining Western Oregon University in September 1987, he taught at the University of Wyoming, the University of Colorado, and the University of Tennessee at Martin.  He holds a Ph.D. from the University of Colorado.
At WOU, Dr. Dover teaches introductory courses in American government and public administration and advanced courses including: Political Parties, Pressure Groups and Elections; American Presidential Elections; Federalism and Intergovernmental Relations; Public Personnel Administration; Governmental Budgeting; Congress and the Presidency; Constitutional Law; Community Politics; and Public Sector Labor Relations.

His scholarship focuses on American presidential elections and includes six published books and various papers dealing with voting patterns, news coverage, television advertising, and electoral disputes involving the elections from 1960 to 2012.  His most recent book, On Message: Television Advertising by the Presidential Candidates in Election 2008, focuses on the personal and political narratives candidates employed in their advertising during the nomination and general election campaigns.
Dover is also an active member of the faculty labor union, the Western Oregon University Federation of Teachers. He has served several terms as both chapter president and chief negotiator in collective bargaining negotiations. 
As is our tradition we meet at the Willamette Heritage Center at the Mill. For lunch reservations please visit our web site at and register on line.  Reservations are due by noon Wednesday, November 5, 2014Parking is free.  Doors open at 11:30 AM.
