Presenters: Pamela Evarts Landon, Warner Lord and Henry Griggs
The stories of Charlotte Evarts (1916-1994), the first town historian, and Mary Scranton Evarts (1872-1968), the first librarian of the E. C. Scranton Memorial Library, will be featured in the second lecture on February 11. The story of this mother-and-daughter team is also that of the founding of the Memorial Archives. Both women were passionate about preserving the history of the town and worked to document the changes throughout Madison by collecting pictures, letters, and other ephemera that tell the story of who we are. The Charlotte L. Evarts Memorial Archives, founded in 1995, continues the important work of organizing and preserving collections for those interested in historical inquiry.
