Evansville Museum Hosts Free Lecture About Life of Albion Fellows Bacon
You most likely have heard about the Albion Fellows Bacon Center here in Evansville, but do you know anything about the organization's namesake? Learn about Albion Fellows Bacon's life during a free lecture at the Evansville Museum.
Dr. Denise Lynn is an Associate Professor of History at the University of Southern Indiana, and she will deliver the presentation on Thursday, November 9th at 6:30pm.
Dr. Lynn will discuss how Bacon's efforts would leave a lasting legacy in Evansville and the entire state of Indiana. Bacon lived in a time of rapid change in the United States—born the year the Civil War ended in 1865, and dying in 1933 when Franklin Roosevelt was inaugurated. It was during this period that the U. S. witnessed rapid industrialization and
urbanization, radical gender changes, and campaigns for major urban reform. (Information courtesy of evansvillemuseum.org)
