KHS to present 'Kent in the 1920s'

Published:

The Kent Historical Society will host a special "All About Kent" event, presented by Kent State University graduate students in the school's public history program.

"Kent in the 1920s," will be held at 6:30 p.m. Monday at the Kent Masonic Center, which is located at West Main and South Mantua streets.

Professors John Jameson and Helmut Flacheneckar led the course this fall that will culminate in the presentation of nine speakers covering aspects of Kent's history that have been researched during the semester.

Flacheneckar will discuss "Kent in 1918, its hopes and dreams after World War I as reflected in the Kent Tribune" and Jameson's topic is "Politics of the day in the U.S. and Ohio," and students will present their research on a variety of topics.

Record-Courier Editor Roger Di Paolo will discuss 1920s civic boosterism and KHS Director Tom Hatch will speak about social life conserved in a museum: KHS and the Clapp Woodward House.
