UL First Fridays: Jewish Country Clubs, Maps and Leisure
…it’s all fun and games!
Have a little fun with Archives and Special Collections for the 2022-2023 season of First Fridays. This year we investigate materials in the archives that are strictly recreational.
Presentations begin at noon. Light refreshments and appetizers will be available. ASL interpreters will be present for all First Fridays events. Presentations resume in person this year, with the option to stream via Zoom. Please make a reservation if you plan to attend in person or online.
Having a Ball: Minnesota’s Jewish Country Clubs
Presented by Kate Dietrick, Archivist, Upper Midwest Jewish Archives
Teeing off into the history of local Jewish country clubs, we will especially explore the women who were active in spaces where the unspoken maxim may have once been “gentlemen only, ladies forbidden.”
