“Disaster and Resilience”
by
Casey Mathern,

Like the residents of Tohoku, inhabitants of Olmsted County have endured a number of hardships, from natural disasters to devastating fires. More awesome than the force of a tornado or raging flood waters is the indominable nature of the human spirit. Come hear stories of survival, courage, and resilience in this program complementing the History Center’s exhibit Disaster and Resilience opening March 14.

Casey Mathern is Curator of Collections and Exhibits at the Olmsted County Historical Society.

This event is open to the public and no registration is required. Location:  University of MN Rochester, University Square Shops area, Room 388.
