History Happy Hour
June 17 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
History Happy Hour kicks off its summer schedule on Thursday, June 17 at 6:30 p.m.!
Join speaker Dr. Angela Keaton for her presentation “Cook That Spam a Little Faster: How World War II and Women Changed the Food Industry.” Dr. Keaton is a history professor from Tusculum University and longtime friend of the History Happy Hour. She will be discussing how World War II changed food production and how those changes intersected with the postwar emphasis on gender roles. Some questions she will be answering include: which processed foods emerged, which ones did not succeed, and what role did women play in the process?
The program will be offered through Zoom and will be live streamed on the Chester Inn Museum’s Facebook page.
