One-Day Seminar: Robber Barons or Captains of Industry?: The Gilded Age Revisited hosted by St. Thomas High School (Houston, TX)

April 25, 2018 @ 8:00 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.

Discussion Leader: Greg Schneider, Emporia University

Registration: 8:00am

Access Program materials here. You will be mailed paper copies of these materials a few weeks before the program date.
