One-Day Seminar – Robber Barons or Captains of Industry hosted by PA IU#3 (Homestead, PA)

November 9, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

Revisit the Gilded Age, or Age of Enterprise as some call it and read deeply about the ideas, actions, and legacies of the leading political and industrial figures of the times, exploring the question of whether these people are properly portrayed as either ‘Robber Barons’ or ‘Captains of Industry’ – or, perhaps, something of both.

This educational program has been made possible thanks to a generous grant from the Allegheny Foundation.

Discussion Leader: Gregory Schneider, Emporia University

Registration: 8:30 am
