"Adeline and Julia: Growing up in Michigan and on the Kansas Frontier", Robert C. Myers

Robert C. Myers Assistant Director for Education Programs and Events for the Historical Society of Michigan and former Curator of the History Center returns to Berrien Springs to tell the story of local sisters Adeline and Julia Graham. Both kept lively diaries of their adventures—Adeline as a teenaged tomboy and Julia as a young woman homesteading in Kansas. Their diaries show Victorian women leaving their prescribed “women’s sphere” of life to engage in politics, business and homesteading.
