Lunch with the History People
Who: Terry Degner has an extensive career in sound, video and multi-media productions and even owned his own production company for fourteen years. When he was younger, Terry taught television drama and script development. One of his most well-known students was John Ritter, who made a name for himself playing Jack Tripper in Three’s Company. Now semi-retired, Terry has authored a book about his childhood and is the process of writing a second book about growing up in Minnesota.
What: Terry will discuss his memoir entitled My Brave Little Man. His lecture focuses on the experiences he had while living in an orphanage in Duluth, Minnesota, during the early 1950’s. Copies of My Brave Little Man will be available for purchase after this presentation.
Where: The event will be held in the Ruth Maney Room, 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.

Bring your antique/collectible item to the St. Louis County Heritage & Arts Center (the Depot) for a free appraisal on Wednesday, June 19, 2013! The St. Louis County Historical Society has arranged for Dan Sershon of Northland Estate Services and Denny Mager of Northern Specialty, both experts in antique appraisal, to be at your service from noon until 3 PM in the Great Hall.
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.
Past participants have thoroughly enjoyed the appraiser’s comments on what is always an interesting assortment of antiques and collectibles. ARCO coffee is available while you wait.
This session is part of an on-going public education program offered by the St. Louis County Historical Society. Sponsorship does not imply endorsement of this or any other estate/appraisal service, and museum staff is prohibited by professional ethics from making financial appraisals.
