PAST LECTURES

March 4, 2021: Cringeworthy and Bizarre Artifacts Virtual Lecture presented by Jim Wall 

Join Museum of American Heritage (MOAH) president Jim Wall online when he presents some of the weird, unusual, and cringe worthy artifacts from the museum collection and beyond. What is it that makes something disturbing, terrifying, or just makes us uncomfortable? A wide ranging talk spanning vintage advertisements to physical artifacts from the museum collection. Take this opportunity to find out about some of the world’s most disturbing medical artifacts and the history behind them.

Watch the lecture HERE.

April 14 at 5pm: "For the Love of Iris" Virtual Lecture presented by Betsy Fryberger via Zoom
The iris was beloved by two remarkable Palo Alto women, Dora Williams and Elizabeth Gamble. Learn how their passion for these stately, fragrant flowers became the signature of their gardens nearly a century ago and how we continue to enjoy them today. Join Betsy Fryberger for a fascinating look at the historic Williams garden on Homer Avenue which features many bearded iris introduced in the 1930s. In her talk, she will share photos and try to answer the question, "Did Dora Williams and Elizabeth Gamble know each other?" This program is co-hosted by Gamble Garden, The Woman's Club of Palo Alto, and The Museum of American Heritage.

Betsy Fryberger, former curator of prints and drawings at the Cantor Museum at Stanford, is an avid gardener who is especially interested in historic gardens. She has been a dedicated volunteer in the garden for many years at both The Museum of American Heritage (MOAH) and the Elizabeth F. Gamble Garden.
