Lt. Col. Hagestad II has an interesting connection to UWRF. His grandfather, Herman T. Hagestad, was a UW Regent in the 1950’s and thus Hagestad Hall was named after him. His father, William Hagestad, Sr., was a professor in the English Department and Fulbright Professor representing the University in Tehran, Iran, from 1964-68. Lt. Col. Hagestad II is one of the world’s experts in his field. His books include “21st Century Chinese Cyberwarfare (2012), “Chinese Information Warfare Doctrine Development 1995-2014” (2013), and “China’s Plans for Winning Information Confrontation: Important Chinese Information Warfare Articles” (2014).
