Meet the Morrisons
Sunday, March 11, 4:00 pm

Davidson College Alumni House
420 N. Main Street, Davidson

Robert Hall Morrison is a name familiar to us because of his role in founding and as the first president of Davidson College, but he was much more than that. Please join us as we meet and talk with Dr. Morrison and his wife, Mary Graham Morrison, the daughter of General Joseph Graham, as  interpreted and presented by Jim and Ann Williams. The year will be 1858 and Dr. and Mrs. Morrison will speak and answer questions about their lives and accomplishments.

Jim and Ann Williams are historic researchers and writers who present a variety of the area’s historic figures in first-person interpretation. They have researched the Morrisons in depth and will appear in the personas of these famous individuals.

This program is free and open to the public.

(Parking is available on Main Street, or in the college parking lots next to the Smith House and directly behind the Alumni House. After entering campus via Glasgow Street, the Smith House parking lot will be immediately to your right.
