The Thomas Ford Memorial Library began its annual series of Elmer Kennedy History Lectures in the winter of 1995. Since that time it has presented three lectures focused on the history of Western Springs, Chicago, Illinois, or the region each year.
Please look for our new schedule of programs starting in the winter of 2011! Below is the list of upcoming lectures. If no events are listed, please check back in the winter! You may view our entire calendar here.
Lectures in this series are sponsored in memory of longtime Western Springs resident Elmer Kennedy.
