History!’ series presents Frank Grumbine
On Nov. 13, Ship’s “Diggin’ History” series will feature
history major Frank Grumbine. Grumbine’s program “Inundation of the Heartland:
Hurricane Agnes and the landscape of the Susquehanna Valley,” begins at 7 p.m.
in Dauphin Humanities Center 151.
In his presentation, based on the original archival research
conducted in the Pennsylvania State Archives, Grumbine tells the story of the
horrific damage caused by Hurricane Agnes and how that disaster transformed the
way Pennsylvania and the United States government manage flooding and respond
to natural disasters.
This event is sponsored by the History and Philosophy
Department and the History Club. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
