Join us on March 23 for the inaugural session of the Olive Spannaus Education Series, which highlights underrepresented communities in art, nature, and history and is led by members of those communities.

Authors and historians Maureen Holtz and Nicholas Syrett will discuss lesser-known influential relationships in Robert Allerton’s life, including Agnes Allerton, Anna Rathbone, Ellen Emmett, and John Gregg Allerton. Holtz will draw on her 14 years of research and three Allerton-focused books to provide little-known details of Robert and his stepmother, godmother, and friend/love interest. Syrett will share his research in the history of same-sex partnerships in the United States, highlighting Robert and John’s unique relationship, as detailed in his recent book, An Open Secret: The Family Story of Robert and John Gregg Allerton.

A cash bar will be available at 5:30pm. The program will begin at 6pm and will last approximately one hour.

$5/person (15 & under free) Register here.

We are working to make this program available virtually, and will update this page accordingly.
