19th Amendment-Victory for the Suffragists
Tuesday, March 10
19th Amendment-Victory for the Suffragists  (Program)
1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
1000 South Hurstbourne Parkway (at Linn Station Road), Louisville, KY

 

Presented by League of Women Voters

A suffragist is one who believes in extending political suffrage (the right to vote), especially to women.  In August of this year, we celebrate the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th amendment.  The battle for women’s voting rights was a long and arduous fight that pitted husband against wife, men against women.  Not all women supported this issue and there are many stories around the events which lead to women’s voting.  Today many people take for granted this right and our speaker will tell us about the long process to win the right of women to vote.  Focusing on the Louisville scene, our speaker will give us a better appreciation of this right.

Brief History of Jeffersontown and Its People
Tuesday, May 12
Brief History of Jeffersontown and Its People  (Program)
1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
1000 South Hurstbourne Parkway (at Linn Station Road), Louisville, KY

 

Presented by Beth Wilder

This presentation will focus on important Jeffersontown events and people beginning with the first settlers in the late 1700s. The area around present-day Jeffersontown had become the last logical resting place for people traveling through to the region of the Falls of the Ohio. Many had already secured grants for land allotments while others only had the hope to establish a home in the wilderness. Abraham Bruner had the foresight to organize a village there, and many pioneers opted to stay in the verdant area that would become known as Jeffersontown, rather than travel further west. Beth Wilder will share information on the evolution of the town; notable individuals and families; historic sites and buildings; and the transportation issues that affected growth of the town. She will answer questions following her presentation.
 
Beth Wilder manages the Jeffersontown Museum along with John Ulmer, President of the Jeffersontown Historical Society, and his wife, Donna. The museum is located in the Jeffersontown Library Building but is a totally separate operation. It is a popular place for school class visits, as well as senior groups and adult daycare.  The museum contains many pictures, documents, relics and placard explanations regarding the history and people of Jeffersontown. The museum is open Monday – Friday, 10am – 5 pm (excepting holidays).  Admission is free, and all are encouraged to visit.




“The Magic 7’s In Louisville Aviation History”
Tuesday, June 9
“The Magic 7’s In Louisville Aviation History”  (Program)
1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
1000 South Hurstbourne Parkway (at Linn Station Road), Louisville, KY

 

Presented by Charlie Arrington

This Program is about how it seems that years that have the last number as "7" seem to have had something interesting happen in Louisville aviation history, such as Charles Lindbergh flew into Louisville in 1927 and that the airlines moved from Bowman Field to the new Standiford Field in 1947. We will take a look at many of these "7" events.
 
Aviation history has long captivated Charlie Arrington from Louisville. He has contributed articles about aviation for nationally distributed magazines and written text for a number of air shows. In addition, he has co-authored a book about aviation in Clark and Floyd Counties in Southern Indiana. He authored an article in the Spring 2015 issue of Friends Journal, the United States Air Force Museum Foundation Magazine. His latest book is a 2017 book titled: Bowman Field that was released as part of the Arcadia Images of Aviation series. Charlie enjoys aviation photography, attending fly-ins and air shows as well as visiting aviation museums.
