Dramatic changes in attitudes toward sanitation and hygiene occurred between 1800--when few Americans thought bathing necessary--and 1925--when the nation had become the "best plumbed" on earth. This illustrated lecture discusses the technology contributing to these changes as well as the sorts of sanitary fixtures available to the Victorians.
Cash bar at 5:30 p.m. with lecture starting at 6.
