Grant Talk on Erie RR Moved to April 4

Due to a schedule conflict, the lecture by history professor and lifetime Akron Railroad Club member H. Roger Grant has been moved up a week.

Grant will now speak before the Kent Historical Society on Thursday, April 4. The talk will begin at 7 p.m. in the First Christian Church in Kent. The event is free and open to the public.

The topic of the talk will be the overall state of the Erie Railroad before its merger with the Delaware, Lackawanna & Western Railroad in 1960 to create the Erie Lackawanna.

In particular, Grant will focus on the career of Erie executive Robert Woodruff and how the culture of the Erie caused problems with profitability and creativity.
