Richard Anderson to speak
Sauder Village is hosting a free Agricultural Lecture Series at the Heritage Inn this season in conjunction with the renovation of the historic Grist Mill.
Richard P. Anderson, Chairman of The Andersons, Inc., will present the first lecture Monday, May 19 at 7:30 p.m. with a program showcasing the history of the Andersons company and their impact on agriculture in Northwest Ohio.
“As part of our mission to preserve and present the agricultural history of our region, this lecture series will help share the social, economic and cultural history of Northwest Ohio, how that ties in with the agricultural history, and its importance in the development of our state,” said Kim Krieger, PR/Media Relations. “The speakers that have been selected for this series are known for their expertise and knowledge of agricultural history.”
Thanks to the support of the Ohio Humanities Council, all programs in the series are free and open to the public.
Future lectures will be held June 9, when Todd Price, founding director of Historic Wagner Farm in Glenview, Illinois, will present, “The Dawn of the Golden Age of Agriculture” and Oct. 6, when Joe Anderson from Mount Royal University in Alberta, Canada will present “The Vacant Chair on the Farm: Understanding Marriage, Farm Management, and Soldiering in the Midwest During the American Civil War.”
