The free lecture is part of the 2009 George R. Mather Sunday Lecture Series, made possible with support from the Dunsire Family Foundation. Jan is the director of regional services at Arts United of Greater Fort Wayne, and also served as director of education at The Lincoln Museum, which included as part of her work directing a major temporary exhibit, “Coast to Coast on the Lincoln Highway.”

The History Center is at 302 East Berry Street. For more information, call (260) 426-2882, or visit www.fwhistorycenter.com/.
