TITLE: A Visit with Marian Lindberg, Author of Scandal on Plum Island: A Commander Becomes the Accused
LOCATION: Zoom
DATES & TIMES: Wednesday, June 3, 12pm
FEE: FREE
TO RSVP: https://rogersmemorial.librarycalendar.com/events/visit-marian-lindberg-author-scandal-plum-island-commander-becomes-accused-zoom
DESCRIPTION: Plum Island, NY, has been the subject of many tales, but few know the true story of a sensational trial that took place there in 1914: the court-martial of a commander and Philippine War veteran for allegedly groping 16 male subordinates. The accusers were lying, claimed Major Benjamin Koehler, who lived on the island with his sister, both of them unmarried. The resulting trial made headlines across the nation at a time when federal discrimination against perceived gays and lesbians was just getting started. Lindberg will talk about the case, its social context, and current-day efforts to preserve the historic structures and wildlife habitats of Plum Island and prevent the island’s sale for development. Co-Sponsored with the Rogers Memorial Library.

PROGRAM: ZOOM – RML
TITLE: Women War Correspondents: Middle East with Patricia DelGiorno
LOCATION: Zoom
DATES & TIMES: Wednesday, June 10, 12pm
FEE: FREE
TO RSVP: https://rogersmemorial.librarycalendar.com/events/women-war-correspondents-middle-east-patricia-delgiorno
DESCRIPTION: This program uses the experiences of four female journalists covering the Middle East – Christiane Amanpour, Lara Logan, Marie Colvin, and Lynsey Addario – to highlight significant issues confronting journalists today. Some may assume that war journalists enter into combat zones because of bravado or an addiction to adrenaline. But for these women, covering war is a moral imperative. They push themselves into the eye of war so that they can be on the frontlines of history – to bear witness to events as they unfold and to report back so that the public may have a better understanding of the world.   As in all wars, this comes with grave risks but women face an additional peril – that of being sexually assaulted, an issue once taboo to talk about but now front and center for women journalists covering conflict in the Middle East. These risks and the efforts to mitigate them will also be part of our discussion. Co-Sponsored with the Rogers Memorial Library.

PROGRAM: ZOOM – Lecture
TITLE: Celebrating Southampton: the 275th and 375th Anniversaries
LOCATION: Zoom
DATES & TIMES: Thursday, June 11, 11am
FEE: FREE
TO RSVP: Southamptonhistory.org/calendar
DESCRIPTION: In 1915, Southampton hosted its 275th anniversary with a pageant in Agawam Park. The celebration was unprecedented in its time, consisting of staged performances, gatherings of Shinnecock natives, costumed pilgrims and soldiers, musicians, orators, children marching, a whaling rally, and many other events. Many of these happenings were documented by the photographs of George Morris, as well as the Pathé News film of the celebration. Fast forward to 2015 – marking the 375th anniversary of Southampton – and the celebration has expanded to a full year of events and gatherings to honor Southampton’s history. A century makes a remarkable difference, adding new methods and activities for celebrating. These included the Halsey House gala, multiple history lectures and cultural performances, tours of both the houses of worship and the remarkable homes that celebrate Southampton’s architectural history. This lecture will focus primarily on the 1915 Pageant and its forms of celebration, and will compare them to the 2015 year-long celebration.
