Seventh “Neighborhood” Talk at the U of M Will be October 17th in McWherter Library

For release: October 12, 2012
For press information, contact Curt Guenther, 901-678-2843

Jimmy Ogle, Memphis historian and local urban explorer, will continue his series of “Know Your Neighborhood” talks with "Centennial Review and More" at the University of Memphis Ned McWherter Library on Wednesday, Oct. 17.  His talk will begin at noon in Room 225.  It is free and open to the public.

This seventh installment will continue to examine the physical characteristics and other features of each University of Memphis neighborhood district through the past century.

The U of M’s main campus is surrounded by seven distinct neighborhood districts, most which pre-date the 1912 opening of the institution. They include Red Acres, University Area, Joffre, East Buntyn, Messick-Buntyn, Normal Station, and Sherwood Forest. 

The University Libraries of the University of Memphis, with the support of the Friends of the Libraries, are sponsoring Ogle’s talks.
