Cranberry Culture: A Short History of a Tart Fruit
One of our all-time favorite speakers, Rob Cox, returns to present a talk about the history of cranberries in New England, from taming the wild fruit through the growth of an industry to the labor and environmental struggles of the 20th century.
Cox has a bachelor’s degree in geology; master’s degrees in paleontology, history, poetry, and library science; and a PhD in history. He has held positions as curator of manuscripts and photographs at the William L. Clements Library at the University of Michigan and as keeper of manuscripts and director of scholarship and technology at the American Philosophical Society. Cox teaches at Simmons Graduate School of Library Information Sciences and in the Department of History at UMass Amherst. His books include Massachusetts Cranberry Culture: A History from Bog to Table (2012); A History of Chowder: Four Centuries of a New England Meal (2011); The Shortest and Most Convenient Route: Lewis and Clark in Context (2004) and Body and Soul: A Sympathetic History of American Spiritualism (2003).
Join us with your lunch in hand. We will provide coffee, tea or cider for you as you listen to the presentations.
