The Suffragents at LIRIC (Learning in Retirement at Iona College, New Rochelle, NY), 30 January 2019



Many months ago, Roseanne Klein, who had heard me speak two years ago at the Scarsdale Women’s Club,  invited me to present on The Suffragents to the students of LIRIC, the Learning In Retirement program of Iona College. This day the group assembled in the large main hall of the Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church in New Rochelle.

It’s a successful course, judging by the large number of men and women in the audience and the many excellent questions they asked.



My daughter, Brett Kroeger, who lives in Riverside CT, was even able to come. She filmed the lecture on her phone and it’s posted below.
