Derby’s Line on topic at Colby

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS BRIEFS -

It’s sur­pris­ing the ef­fect that an imag­i­nary line can have on a so­ci­ety, es­pe­cially when that line is a bor­der be­tween two coun­tries. At this Satur­day’s Lec­ture-Lun­cheon of the Stanstead His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety, which will be held in the Mu­seum’s beau­ti­ful so­lar­ium, an Amer­i­can his­to­rian will speak about how the bound­aries and the Town­ship of Derby were af­fected by his­tor­i­cal cir­cum­stances from the late 1800’s to to­day. Allen Yale, the pres­i­dent of the Derby His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety, is cross­ing the bor­der to speak about this fas­ci­nat­ing topic in Canada, where things have evolved quite dif­fer­ently. His lec­ture is en­ti­tled “The Chang­ing Bor­ders of Derby”.

Be­sides be­ing the pres­i­dent of the Derby His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety, Mr. Yale has taught So­cial Stud­ies at the high school level and his­tory at Lon­don State Col­lege, in Ver­mont.

The lec­ture-lun­cheon be­gins at 10:30 am, Satur­day, Septem­ber 28th, and is open to all. The ad­mis­sion fee in­cludes lunch. For more in­for­ma­tion call the Colby-Cur­tis Mu­seum at 819 876-7322.
