‘History Bites’ Lunchtime Lecture Series
‘History Bites’ is back!
‘History Bites’ is a series of thirty minute lectures to inform and entertain, covering various aspects of the history of Amherst, its surrounding environs, and the lives of those who once lived here. The Amherst Historical Society started this popular series in 2014 and we are fortunate to have archived video of lectures dating back to 2015.
The February 25 lecture will be given over Zoom. The rest of the Spring 2022 lectures will take place in person in the Jones Library Woodbury Room.
Both the hurricane of 1938 and World War II were transformative events for Amherst College. Listen to Pulitzer Prize winning architectural critic Blair Kamin as he explains the events and the reactions of the college and the community of Amherst.
