Growing Rural Modernity: 4-H Clubs in America and the World, Guest Lecture (Oct 16)

October 4, 2018

I pledge my head to clearer thinking,
My heart to greater loyalty,
My hands to larger service, and
My health to better living….

The four Hs of the 4-H club pledge made an indelible impression upon the generations of children with whom Dr. Amrys Williams would engage as she completed her Ph.D. at UW-Madison, combing local and national archives. Having discovered an additional set of 4-H Club Records in the University Archives with a rich file of personal essays speaking to the breadth of experience that 4-H clubs afforded their members, she has returned to campus to continue her research and to report on her current book project.

Dr. Williams will deliver a lecture on Tuesday, October 16 (noon-1:00 PM) in the BioCommons at Steenbock Library. This special, brown-bag event is free and open to the public; we look forward to welcoming you there.
