“The Founding of St Louis: More than Chouteau and Laclede” by Sharon Person

Venue Friendship Village Sunset Hills

Venue
Friendship Village
Sunset Hills

SCHS at Friendship Village Sunset Hills – Rhineland Room in the Crossings building
“The Founding of St Louis: More Than Chouteau and Laclede.”
Did Pierre Laclède along his stepson, Auguste Chouteau, found St. Louis as is the claim in Chouteau’s journals? Or did settlers simply cross the Mississippi over a period of years and build up a small community. Sharon K. Person, along with Carl J. Ekberg, researched original documents from the colonial era concerning settlement in the St Louis region. They present their conclusion in their book, “St. Louis Rising: The French Regime of Louis St. Ange de Bellerive,” that Laclède and Chouteau were not the prime movers in a “founding” of St Louis. Sharon Person is a professor and works with the Center for French Colonial Studies. See book “St Louis Rising: The French Regime of Louis St. Ange de Bellerive”

“Air Travel, from Biplanes to Passenger Airliners”
by Ken Velten, retired from Boeing and Adjunct Faculty at St. Louis Community College.
The Wright Brothers first showed the possibility of powered flight in aircraft carrying people in 1903 but the airline industry developed slowly until the 1930‘s. There are great stories about the industry as it transitioned from fabric covered biplanes to metal four engine airliners capable of crossing the oceans. This lecture will cover the airplanes, the men and the airlines that created the airline industry. The development of airlines like TWA, American, Pan Am, Eastern and United will be shown. Airplanes like the Curtis Condor, the DC3, the Pan Am Clippers and the DC 6/7 and the Constellation will be discussed. And the pioneers like CR Smith, Juan Trippe, Eddie Rickenbacker and Howard Hughes will be covered. The time period will be from the 1920’s to the beginning of the jet age in the 1950’s including the role of the airlines in WWII.

SCHS at Friendship Village Sunset Hills – Rhineland Room in the Crossings building. “Secret St Louis” by David Baugher
Where in St. Louis can you. . .
. . picnic at a radioactive waste dump?
. . . learn what West County Center’s famous dove really represents?
. . . visit the grave of the man who burned Atlanta?
. . . join a nudist resort?
. . . view a cube comprised of a million dollar bills?
. . . see a piece from New York’s Twin Towers?
. . . find out exactly what a Billiken is?
Whether you are piloting a simulated barge on the Mississippi River, exploring the hidden history of Abraham Lincoln’s bizarre sword fight in St. Charles County, or eating a ten-pound apple-pie in Kimmswick inspired by the Great Flood of 1993, it is hard to get bored with a copy of Secret St. Louis: A Guide to the Weird, Wonderful, and Obscure. By turns wistful and whimsical, this is a book that answers the questions you never knew you had about St. Louis while taking readers on a whirlwind tour through ninety-seven unique but little-known spaces and places that can’t be found anywhere else. A tourist handbook for people who thought they never needed one, Secret St. Louis provides a scavenger hunt of hidden gems traversing the somber, strange, surprising, and silly locales which define the culture and history that make St. Louis such a diverse and amazing place to call home. From Weldon Spring to Wildwood, Overland to O’Fallon, Bellefontaine to Bridgeton, this is an exploration of St. Louis’s odds and ends like no other.

by Ken Velten, retired from Boeing and Adjunct Faculty at St. Louis Community College. The United States Navy got its start during the Revolutionary War, came of age fighting the Barbary pirates and in the War of 1812, had a split personality during the Civil War and finally was the major player in the Spanish American War. During this time the US Navy transitioned from sailing wooden ships firing solid cannon balls to steam powered iron ships firing exploding shells. This brief presentation will cover the men, the ships and the battles that form a rich history of the American Navy. Included will be heroics of John Paul Jones, the exploits of the USS Constitution, the historic battle of the ironclads, the USS Monitor and CSS Virginia (Merrimack) and Admiral Dewey’s victory in Manila.
