[ARCHIVED] Why Pittsburgh? A Story of Innovation presented by Anne Madarasz

Anne Madarasz is the Curatorial Division Director, Chief Historian, and Director of the Western PA Sports Museum at the Heinz History Center. Sunday, Nov. 3, 2019 at 2:00 PM in Council Chambers. Seating is limited, registration is required.

Anne's talk, Why Pittsburgh? A Story of Innovation, will focus not only on the region's rich and complex history, but on the city's tradition of innovation. Blessed with abundant natural resources and linked to markets downriver, this region developed as first a commercial and industrial center. It attracted innovators such as John Roebling, George Westinghouse, Charles Martin Hall, and Jonas Salk, as well as being the birthplace of great minds such as Rachel Carson and August Wilson. Ms. Madarasz will talk about the unique story of the people and this place and how innovators from here have impacted the world.  In conjunction with the Cranberry Historical Society, the event will be held in Council Chambers.

Seating is limited. Online registration for this event is open or call 724-776-9100 for more information.
