The Rise, Demise, and Possible Rebirth of the Connecticut River Valley Industrial Corridor

 Sunday, August 5, at 12:30 PM


Dr. Robert Forrant, Distinguished University Professor at UMass, Lowell will
speak.  The title of his presentation is The Rise, Demise, and Possible
Rebirth of the Connecticut River Valley Industrial Corridor.

Through an examination of the history of innovation and sustainable
development in Worcester and in cities and towns along the Connecticut River
from Springfield, MA to Springfield, VT, Dr. Forrant will describe how these
places developed enterprises that offered workers decent wages and an
opportunity to support their families. How did this happen? And, more
importantly what took place after the Second World War, which interrupted
this virtuous circle of sustained and reasonably share prosperity?

Admission to the presentation is FREE – exhibit hall admission is $8.00 for Adults; $5.00 for Students; $20 for a Family of four. Current exhibit is
