Please arrive no later than 2:30 PM to register in person.
You may bring up to two items per person for an informal oral identification and evaluation of each antique. If the piece is too large or fragile to be hand-carried, clear photographs with a description of any marks and labels will be sufficient.

St. Louis County Historical Society Presents:
“LUNCH WITH THE HISTORY PEOPLE”
When: Thursday, April 17, 2014, from noon – 1 PM
Who: As the sole proprietor of Cedar Story Services, Gina Temple-Rhodes records oral histories for local non-profits. Her examination of birthing history began in 2011, when Birthing Ways Doula Connection recruited her to interview women who had given birth during the 1930's - 1950's. She conducted in-depth historic research and sought out photos to further develop the project in 2013.
What: Gina will discuss “Birthing Progress: The History of Giving Birth in Duluth,” which outlines her interviews and research. Her explorations captured a part of history that has often been neglected. The stories document the births of “some who were later jailed and others who rose to prominence as local business leaders.” According to Gina, “birth moved from the realm of homes and women to the scientific and sometimes secret world of hospitals and male doctors.”
Where: The event will be held in the Underground on the first floor of the St. Louis County Heritage & Arts Center (the Depot), at 506 West Michigan Street, Duluth, Minnesota.
There will be limited theater-style seating (no tables), but feel free to bring your own bag lunch. Seating is first-come, first-served (no reservations). Admittance to this event is free to the public. ARCO coffee is provided.
