Speaker: Dr. Elisabeth Roark, Associate Professor of Art and Art History, Chatham University
This speaker was originally scheduled for February 12, but the meeting was canceled due to weather — then our original March speaker had to cancel and we will be rescheduling him for next year.( “History of the Pittsburgh Fire Department” Speaker: Francis “Kip” Deleonibus, Asst. Chief of Operations, Pittsburgh Fire Bureau)
This is the third presentation by Dr. Roark to our group. Her interest in cemeteries led to a talk June 2005 on “The Evolution of Pittsburgh Cemeteries: Trinity, Allegheny & Homewood”. September 2004, she presented a fascinating talk on “”A Hidden Treasure: Tiffany’s Alumnae Memorial Window at Chatham College”. So we look forward to another wonderful evening experience.
