The Life and Times of America's Salesmen: 200 Years of Library of Congress Pictures and Prints

A Road Scholar Program by Ronald Solberg

Library of Congress pictures and prints are indeed worth more than a thousand words each, as this presentation chronicles the adventures (and misadventures) of America’s peddlers, commercial travelers, drummers, patent-medicine salesmen, while featuring the obscure, notorious, the influential, and the innovators who created products that are still with us today.

This event is Free and Open to the public. For more information, please contact Jeanne Greenwalt, 815.498.9037.
