Hayman Meeting Room, Delmar Public Library
Monday, August 12, 2019 - 1:30pm
The railroad was once an important link to the outside world for many Delawareans and the local depot was the center of the community, a place to catch a train and learn the news of the day. As tracks spread downstate, growth followed the lines. This slide-illustrated program traces the social history of trains in the First State, from the beginning of the railroad age to the present. Presented by historian and writer Mike Dixon. Mike is a historian and writer whose research and teaching focuses on social history and community studies. For over four decades, he has worked to encourage public interest and participation in the preservation of the past while creating understandings between earlier eras and the present. Addressing his area of scholarship, he has appeared on the Today Show, the National Geographic Channel and in prestigious magazines. Mike enjoys seeking out stories that create a distinctive sense of place. Along the way he finds rich, deep, and varied stories about earlier times in our fascinating towns and communities. He holds graduate degrees in history and the behavioral sciences and teaches as an adjunct professor of history at a number of area universities and colleges. His interest in the study of the past started in the late 1960s when he started volunteering at a local historical society. Brought to you by the Delaware Humanities.
