There are a couple of events going on this week to celebrate Appleton’s 150th birthday. On Wednesday evening, July 11, from 7-8 pm, a presentation at the Appleton Public Library will be held to discuss the early days of Appleton. I will be giving a talk on the early days of Lawrence University. For more information, see the following link.
An exhibit at the Appleton Art Center will open Friday, July 13 titled, 1857/2007: Then/Now. The exhibit features works of art from the time of Appleton’s founding and from the present day. Works of art from the Lawrence University Archives will also be part of the exhibit. The exhibit runs through September 8. For more information, see the following link.
