Mr. Parrish's talk will be an illustrated power-point presentation on the history of the United States Life Saving Service at the Falls of the Ohio, 1881-1915.  This was the only LSS (U.S. Lifesaving Station) on the inland waters of the United States.  The crew answered many alarms to save people, boats and cargo at risk of life until the Service became part of the US Coast Guard.  They were known as the "Heroes at the Falls."  Mr. Parrish and Dr. Leland Johnson wrote the book, Heroes at the Falls: Louisville's Lifesavers, as a record of this landmark and the men who served.

Walter Haldeman; Louisville Publisher
Tuesday, October 9
Walter Haldeman; Louisville Publisher  (Program)
1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
1000 South Hurstbourne Parkway (at Linn Station Road), Louisville, KY

 

Presented by: Donna Andrew Russell
 
Walter Haldeman is a largely unrecognized Louisvillian who made a great contribution to his city and Kentucky. His career advanced from typesetter to newspaper founder and publisher. Although a major influence in 19th Century U.S. newspaper business, Mr. Haldeman shied away from the spotlight. He preferred to let his editor, Henry Watterson, be the flamboyant and opinionated spokesman for fifty years.  A New York Times article in 1902 described him as "a man of unusual force of character, but remarkably modest, so that he resented any form of publicity about himself." We will disrupt his preference for personal privacy by reviewing the life and contributions of Walter Haldeman.
