In addition, a big doubleheader will be held in honor of Babe Ruths birthday on Saturday, February 6.
The Halsey Hall Chapter Book Club will meet at 9:30 a.m. at Barnes & Noble in Har Mar Mall in Roseville to discuss Ladies and Gentlemen, the Bronx Is Burning: 1977, Baseball, Politics, and the Battle for the Soul of a City by Jonathan Mahler. In addition, the group will discuss the telecast of Game 7 of the 1965 World Series. The complete game is available for purchase from iTunes or for viewing on YouTube: 1965 World Series, Game 7: Dodgers @ Twins.
In the afternoon the Research Committee will host a workshop at the Minnesota History Center starting at 1:00. The tour is designed to familiarize members with the research resources in the library and microfilm room. Dan Cagley will then lead a special behind-the scenes tour of the centers archives. Meet in the main lobby of the History Center at 1:00. Early arrivers may want to eat in the cafeteria next to the lobby.
Members are invited to submit a proposal to make a research presentation at the meeting (with the understanding they might not know if theyre available until the meeting date is set. Proposals must be sent to Research Committee co-chairs Brenda Himrich or Sarah Johnson and include a title and brief outline of what the presentation will consist of with emphasis on the research that will be included. Standard presentations are 20 minutes (with an additional eight minutes for questions) although the duration may be longer or shorter depending on the needs of the presenter and of the schedule. The Research Committee (which also consists of Dan Levitt, Stew Thornley, Rich Arpi, and Bob Tholkes) will finalize the schedule of research presentations two weeks before the meeting, so proposals must be submitted by then.
