Windsor Place of Wilmington (92 West Street) is opening its doors to the public for a lecture on the year 1919 at 11am in the Activity Room. Gary Hylander holds a Doctorate in Presidential History and is a scholar entirely impassioned by his subject matter. He makes U.S. history come alive. This month’s topic is: 1919 @ 100. This year marks the centennial of the calendar year 1919. Following the end of the Great War of 1914-1918, America was rocked by labor unrest and bombings. A Red Scare swept the nation. What sinister forces were behind the Black Sox World Series Scandal? A fatal influenza epidemic overwhelmed the resources of the medical community. Women voted, bobbed their hair and smoked in public. World War I was where the nineteenth and twentieth centuries parted ways. In the 1920 election, presidential nominee, Warren Harding, campaigned on a return to “normalcy.”
