Untarnishing the Gilded Age: The Rutherford B. Hayes Presidential Center and America 1870-1901

Two one-week workshops for 50 community college faculty held at The Rutherford B. Hayes Presidential Center in Fremont, Ohio, on critical issues of the Gilded Age in America.

The Hayes Presidential Center's "Untarnishing the Gilded Age" examines the critical issues of the period 1870-1901. These topics, which include political reform, industrialization, labor relations, immigration, assimilation of newly freed African-Americans, and relations with Native Americans, will be achieved via presentations by published scholars, tours of the Hayes Presidential Center's Library, Museum, home, and grounds, and research activities in archival holdings of artifacts, books, manuscripts, illustrations, and photographs.
