We are pleased to invite you to a fascinating lecture by Morris J. Vogel, a social historian and president of the Lower East Side Tenement Museum in New York City, on Friday, September 4 at 7p.m. Dr. Vogel has published six books on the social history of American medicine, cultural history and urban history. He was a professor of history at Temple University for 30 years. Originally from Kazakhstan, Dr. Vogel became an American historian because he was curious about his own place in American culture, “always harkening back to what was a ‘real’ American and watching Americans evolve toward a generous and inclusive understanding of their national identity” (source). Come to his lecture on Friday to learn more about this topic!
