PLEASE NOTE: Due to high anticipated attendance, this event has been rescheduled to Parrish Auditorium, Miami University Hamilton.
The Great Easter Flood of 1913 was the most widespread natural disaster in the United States; its tornadoes, extensive severe weather, and subsequent record flooding afflicted 15 states. Join science writer Trudy E. Bell to explore how disaster and its aftermath helped revolutionize flood control technology and policy, municipal water treatment, methods of philanthropy and disaster relief, and even prepared the then-small Red Cross to become a major force on World War I battlefields.
