2010 Conference Speakers
At the annual LHA Conference, at least one day is set aside for speakers to talk about their research, provide workshops, and/or give presentations. Obviously, some of the pictures came from presentations with the lights off.
Duane Paulson's presentation was "Lincoln and the Lincoln Highway in Dixon."
He began with an overview of the history of Dixon.
Cynthia Ogorek's presentation "The Lincoln Highway Around Chicago: A Traveler's Guide fo the Lincoln Highway" included Lincoln Highway 101, an introduction to the history of the highway itself.
This PowerPoint slide is from Olga Herbert, the Executive Director of the Lincoln Highway Heritage Corridor in Pennsylvania, presentation on educational materials for schoolchildren about the Lincoln Highway, "Lincoln Highway Educational Projects: From Pre-School Through High School."
"2010 Preservation Opportunities Along the Lincoln Highway" was the title of Mindy Crawford's presentation.
Mindy Crawford's PowerPoint slide reads as:
"Your help is needed!
*Nominate the sites you care about from your own communities and states
*Submit a nomination and photographs
*Be willing to help spread the word"
This multimedia image of the Dixon mural on the side of the Dixon Welcome Center building is from the presentation "Murals and Gazebos in Illinois" by Bonnie Heimbach, Executive Director, Northern Illinois Tourism Development Office and the Illinois Lincoln Highway Coalition.
