We will host Clark Kidder at the Albion Town Hall, 624 Albion Road, Edgerton, WI, on Saturday, September 24, from 2 pm – 4 pm. Bring the whole family to hear about Clark’s grandmother who was one of about 200,000 children removed from large Eastern cities and settled with new families in the Midwest. The Orphan Trains transported these children from 1854 to 1930!
Mr. Kidder has written books and co-produced a film about the Orphan Trains. He recently received the 2015 Upper Midwest Emmy Award at Concordia KS at the National Orphan Train Complex for his film “West by Orphan Train.” He has also written a 6-volume study of Rural Schools in Rock County and is currently working on Rural Schools in Dane County with the Albion Township section to debut at our meeting!.
