In a talk at the Soda House of Hagley Museum and Library, Wilmington, Delaware, Margaret Mulrooney will tell the story of the thousands of Irish immigrants and their descendants who lived and worked along the banks of the Brandywine Creek, many employed at the DuPont Company’s Hagley powder yards. Mulrooney (a graduate of Wilmington’s Padua Academy) is associate vice provost for University Programs at James Madison University. Copies of her book, "Black Powder, White Lace: The du Pont Irish and Cultural Identity in Nineteenth Century America, will be available."
