Salem and Harvard History Intertwined
Local historian, author and tour guide, Jim McAllister will look at Salem's many connections to Harvard, including its founding, its location, the many soon-to be-famous famous residents - among them Edward Augustus Holyoke, the poet Jones Very, and Joseph Story - who made the prestigious school their training ground, and Nathaniel Bowditch who played a major role in saving Harvard in a time of turmoil.
A great opportunity to get out of the house for a convivial evening with friends. The evening will start at 6:30 with a cash bar and the Hawthorne's famous hors d'oeuvres, followed by Mr. McAllister's talk at 7.
