The Shoe Industry
Malden Public Library
On Saturday, September 7th at 2:00 p.m., join us for “Best Foot Forward: The Shoe Industry in Massachusetts,” a fascinating lecture by Anna Fahey-Flynn, of the Boston Public Library.
At the end of the nineteenth century, Massachusetts was at the heart of the American shoemaking industry. Anna will explore the history of the shoe industry in Massachusetts with a special focus on her hometown. Anna is the exhibit organizer for the Digital Public Library of America’s online exhibition on the Massachusetts shoe industry. Anna will discuss the resources available through the Digital Commonwealth which provides access to photographs, manuscripts, books, and other materials from libraries, museums, archives, and historical societies across the state. All Lectures will be held at the Malden Public Library, 36 Salem Street, MA. For more information, contact the Library at 781-324-0218 or visit their website at www.maldenpubliclibrary.org. These lectures are part of Go Local: Converse 2020, an ongoing series celebrating the life and philanthropic contributions of Malden’s first mayor Elisha Slade Converse and the industrial history of Malden. Go Local is brought to Malden with federal funds provided by the Institute of Museum and Library Services and administered by the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners. The series will continue through Elisha Converse’s 200th Birthday on July 28, 2020.
