Vermont Historical Society Annual Meeting and Conference

“Vermont in the 21st Century: How We Got Here”

Keynote Speaker: Frank Bryan
Panelists: Chris Graff, John McClaughry, Jill Mudgett
Filmmaker: Rick Moulton

Is Vermont an exceptional place?

If so, what are the historical roots of our state’s distinct nature? Come explore these and other issues with others interested in our state and its history. This is a change to the format of the Vermont Historical Society annual meeting: a sale of postcards and other ephemera will begin the day, followed by a brief annual meeting, then a thought-provoking conference will fill the rest of the morning and early afternoon.

After a conference keynote by author, humorist and scholar Frank Bryan, we’ll have a lively panel discussion. After lunch, we’ll see the director’s cut of Rick Moulton’s film, George Aiken: Balancing Freedom and Unity, and have audience discussion with Moulton.

Sale of postcards and ephemera begins at 8:30 am!

Please join us! Saturday, October 17, 2009 – 8:30 am to 2:30 pm
