Virtual Talk: “The Hunt for History” with Nathan Raab
March 2, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Nathan Raab is one of the world’s most knowledgeable and respected experts in historical documents. He spotted a letter from British officials that secured the Rosetta Stone, discovered a piece of the first electric cable Edison laid, restored a fragmented letter from Andrew Jackson that led to the infamous Trail of Tears, and located copies of missing audio recorded on Air Force One as the plane brought JFK’s body back to Washington. This dogged detective has uncovered thousands of interesting documents and artifacts related to important historic figures: from Alexander Hamilton and George Washington to Winston Churchill and Neil Armstrong, to Amelia Earhart and Albert Einstein. He’s also followed false leads and ferreted out forgeries. You may have seen his column, “Historically Speaking” on Forbes.com. You’ll get to hear about his wild treasure hunts firsthand at this unfailingly, entertaining virtual talk.
