The (Forgotten) History of the Quipus and Other Women’s Organizations of Bangor

August 19 at 4:00 pm 5:00 pm

Join the Bangor Historical Society for our next virtual Zoom presentation on Thursday, August 19th at 4pm where we will discuss the history of women’s clubs is often overlooked, despite the powerful impact that they have had on the people of Bangor (and elsewhere!).  This talk will uncover some of that lost local history and shine a new light on the role of women’s clubs in Bangor in the first half of the twentieth century.

Maddie Johnson, the summer intern for the Bangor Historical Society, will delve into this topic.  Maddie is heading into her senior year at Kenyon College in Gambier, Ohio, pursuing a degree in BA degree in History.  Her emphasis is in the history of women and gender with a special interest in social and local history. 

This presentation will be available viz Zoom and on Facebook Live.  To request a Zoom invitation please email curator@bangorhistoricalsociety.org
