Yet Another Change in the Grant Program

The Kent Historical Society has made yet another change to the particulars involving a talk by H. Roger Grant about the Erie Railroad to be held in April. The event will now be held at the Christ Episcopal, at 118 South Mantua St. (State Route 43). The date (April 4) and time (7 p.m.) remain the same.

Grant, a professor of history at Clemson University, will speak about 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.
