Windows in Time: Wayward Girls of the Rogue Valley w/ Jan Wright

January 4 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

FREE

Jackson County has had its share of incorrigible girls. SOHS Archivist Jan Wright will explore case studies of girls from the 1880s to the 1920s who just wanted to have fun and break away from social restrictions. Join Jan Wright and learn more about the contributing factors of the girls’ delinquency and society’s response and attempted reforms to their behavior.

January 4, 12:00 – 1:00 PM – Medford Library & Online

January 11, 12:00 – 1:00 PM – Ashland Library

Get a unique look back through time at local history with the monthly Windows in Time lunchtime lectures, co-sponsored by JCLS and the Southern Oregon Historical Society. We’ve considered some truly fascinating topics over the years, from social and economic trends to architecture and commerce, as well as the people who have called the Rogue Valley home.
