Sunday Afternoon Talks: ONE IMMEDIATE VITAL NEED (THE HISTORY OF THE TRANSCONTINENTAL RAILROAD)

Historian Hamish Lutris returns to the library with a fascinating history of the railroad in America.

“The one immediate vital need of the entire Republic

The transcontinental railroad was considered the greatest engineering, financial feat in the world at the time of its completion. Yet thousands of bodies marked its route, hundreds went bankrupt on the railroads, and many decried their power and influence. This talk will discuss the history of the railroad, from its beginnings in the 1820s in the US top May 10, 1869, when the transcontinental railroad was finished. The talk will also explore the vast power and influence that railroads exerted over the United States, altering the country’s customs and making us a nation of travelers.

 

Bio:

Hamish Lutris is an Associate Professor of History, Political Science, and Geography at Capital Community College in Hartford, Connecticut. He has worked in some of America’s premier natural and historical sites, leading hiking and historical programs. He has also lectured extensively in the United States, Europe, and Canada, presenting programs on wide-ranging historical topics, including Native American history, the Civil War, Scientific History, Social and cultural history, World War I, World War II, and the American West.

 

Free and open to the public.

AARP Driver Safety Class

            The Stratford Library, in conjunction with the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP), will offer another session of the “AARP Driver Safety Program” today, a classroom driver retraining program designed to help older persons improve their driving skills.  The one-day class program, one of dozens offered by the agency every year, will be held in the Library’s Board Room.  Developed by the AARP, the program is the first comprehensive driver retraining course geared to the specific needs of older motorists. 

            The course material covers the effects of aging and medications on driving, basic driving rules, license renewal, local traffic hazards, adverse road conditions, energy saving and accident prevention measures.  No written, physical or driving tests are given.  Research shows that older drivers are involved in more accidents than their middle-aged counterparts when the record is based on actual miles driven.  The physical changes of aging create difficulties for many older drivers when yielding the right-of-way, backing, turning, changing lanes and entering/leaving expressways.

            However, research also indicates that older persons can improve their driving abilities through additional training, attention and practice, enabling them to maintain their driving licenses longer while driving safer.  This is the ultimate goal of the “AARP Driver Safety Program”.       

              Persons 50 years of age or older are eligible to participate in the library program and will receive a certificate of completion at the end of instruction.  The course is limited to 20 participates only and there is a nominal fee of $20 for AARP members and $25 for non-members charged by the AARP. 

 Reservations are required and can be made by calling AARP Representative Michael Klein at 203.929.4851.
