Student Brianna M. to present at Evansville's Willard Library
On Thursday April 19 at 2:00 pm, sophomore archaeology and history major Brianna McLaughlin will give a presentation entitled "Evansville's 'Home of the Friendless:' The Early Years of the Vanderburgh Christian Home. Brianna is an intern at the Willard Library this semester, and one of her projects has been to transcribe records from the Vanderburgh Christian Home. The Home opened in 1870 as a 'maternity home' and was one of the first of its kind in the Midwest. The program is free and open to the public; please see the Willard website for information on how to reserve a place.
