The 2004 Ohio Frontier Conference will be held on October 16 and 17 at the Holiday Inn French Quarter in Perrysburg Ohio. The two-day meeting explores current scholarship relating to the cultural and material history of the Trans-Appalachian and Great Lakes frontiers during the 18th and early 19th centuries.
The program has been designed specifically for academics, secondary and primary educators, museum personnel, re-enactors, and collectors. Educators who attend a free teachers’ workshop on Friday, October 15 are eligible to receive graduate credit through Heidelberg College.
This year’s speakers include Dr. Andrew Cayton from Miami University, Dr. Anne Bissonnette, curator of the Kent State University Museum, archaeologist Bill Pickard, Dr. Daniel Barr from Clarion University, Dr. Keith Widder of Michigan State University, and Ohio Historical Society curator Cheryl Lugg.
