Recent public history master's graduate Jennifer Johnson will discuss the topic of her thesis: how Solomon and Sarah Comstock used their love of education and literacy to help build Moorhead into a vibrant community. She will focus on Solomon's contributions to higher education, and Sarah's activities with the Moorhead Women's Club, including bringing the first public library to Moorhead. 

After the presentation, guests can enjoy light refreshments and explore the house. This presentation is part of the new Hiram M. and Ada M. Drache Lecture Series taking place at the Comstock House during the 2017-2018 school year.
