Dr. Lorraine McConaghy

Ballard Historical Society is pleased to announce a spring 2012 lecture speaker. We welcome Dr. Lorraine McConaghy of the Museum of History and Industry (MOHAI) on Wednesday, April 4, 2012 at 7:00 p.m. at the Ballard Landmark. Dr. McConaghy will take us on a journey through the fascinating original documents she researched for her new book, New Land, North of the Columbia, that tell the story of Washington territory back to 1853.

Dr. McConaghy traveled for more than a year throughout Washington State, visiting public and university libraries, historical society archives, and federal, state, county and municipal archives. 

Of her latest work, Humanities Washington writes, “Drawing from archival material ranging from maps, correspondence and public records to patent drawings, menus and paper dolls, this presentation is highly visual and deeply engaging.”

She has received many awards for her research and publications, and is an Inquiring Minds speaker for Humanities Washington. Read more about Dr. Lorraine McConaghy.

The Ballard Landmark has graciously offered to host the lecture in its fireside library at 5433 Leary Avenue NW, Seattle, WA, 98107.
