October 2021 Meeting
Tuesday, October 5 at 9 a.m. / Hubbard Welcome Center, Butler of El Dorado, 901 S. Haverhill Road, El Dorado
9 a.m. - Derek Foust, associate professor of agriculture at Butler, will present about Butler's well-respected agriculture program.
10 a.m. - Beccy Tanner, a freelance writer and Kansas history teacher at Wichita State University, will present “Dirt, Grit, and Jell-O Salad.” Generations after the Great Depression, Kansans still define themselves and rural communities largely in the same terms their grandparents and great-grandparents once used — “hard-working, close-knit, loyal and faithful.” But the dynamics have changed. This presentation examines historical aspects of Kansas during the 1930s to better understand our rural communities today.
“Dirt, Grit, and Jell-O Salad — How We Survived the Great Depression” is part of Humanities Kansas’s Crossroads Conversations Catalog, featuring presentations, discussions, and workshops designed to spark conversations in the Sunflower State.
