Why Local History Matters: Honoring Jean Bradley Anderson and Her History of Durham County

Durham County Library’s North Carolina Collection and the Museum of Durham History present a celebration in honor of historian Jean Bradley Anderson’s 100th birthday. Jean has written a number of books and articles on local and state history, including the definitive history of Durham County. Her research papers are housed in Durham County Library's North Carolina Collection, and her work is a vital resource for those conducting local history research.

This program consists of a discussion on “Why Local History Matters” featuring moderator Judge Willis Whichard and panelists Bob Anthony, Vera Cecelski, Eddie Davis, Lois Deloatch, Ernest Dollar, John Schelp, and Jim Wise followed by a Q&A with Jean and the panelists.
