General Membership Meeting, Program, & Lunch

General Membership Business Meeting, Presentation, and Lunch will be held in person on November 1st at the Arizona Heritage Center. Wade Weber, Director of Education at Scottsdale’s Museum of the West, will talk to us about the museum's new exhibit, "Light and Legacy: The Art and Techniques of Edward S. Curtis." Curtis's photographs of thousands of Native Americans over several decades--including more than 80 different Native American peoples--became The North American Indian (1907-1930), an illustrated publication of photographs in 20 volumes. The project was supported by Theodore Roosevelt and partly funded by J. Pierpont Morgan. Wade will show us photos from the exhibit and talk about this influential project.

General Membership Meeting, Speaker, & Lunch

Linda Starr, who has loved hats since she was 19 and has a hat collection spanning more than 140 years, will speak to us January 3rd on "Arizona Women Who Might Have Worn My Hats." She has more than 200 hats, found in antique stores, estate shows, and garage sales,  and from friends who gave her their grandmothers' beloved hats. Her collection took off in the 1990s when she started doing vintage fashion shows in Scottsdale for the Scottsdale Historical Society as a fund raiser. They had beautiful clothes but no hats and no accessories, so Linda started searching for them. Linda, who resides in Sedona but spent many years in Paradise Valley, has given programs at the Arizona Costume Institute of the Phoenix Art Museum, the Questers,  the Butterfly Museum,  and many others.  She is a life member of the Sedona Historical Society and Scottsdale Historical Society, and member of the Sedona Questers and Palatki Questers.

The General Business Meeting starts at 10:00 AM; Linda Starr follows at 11:00 AM with lunch at noon. Purchase your box lunch by 5:00 PM on Thursday, December 30th online. Or reserve your place with Mary McMahon and pay by check or cash in person. Members with reservations are responsible for payment even if unable to attend.
