Phi Alpha Theta Sponsors Lecture

Dec 01, 2006

The Phi Alpha Theta History Honorary of Fairmont State is sponsoring a lecture by Clifford Vankirk, a Social Science Education major.

"I will be presenting a lecture on the life of the dwellers of the American backcountry during the American Revolutionary period," Vankirk said. "I will be discussing such things as the log structures people lived in, the clothing they wore, their food and some of the items they produced."

The lecture titled "Material Culture and the Early American Frontier: Food, Clothing and Shelter" will be presented on Tuesday, Dec. 5, at 12:15 p.m. in Room 114 of Hardway Hall.

The lecture will begin with a brief 10-minute presentation by local elementary student Joannah Dyer. She will be presenting on her experiences at last year's unveiling of the West Virginia Statehood Quarter in Charleston. She will also give a brief summary of West Virginia Statehood.
