Save the date for the Eighth Annual Teacher Institute, August 1 & 2, 2017!


Brown Institute Logo


Virginians imbibed their last legal drink on Halloween night in 1916—more than three years before national prohibition was enacted. For the next 18 years the state became a laboratory for a grand social experiment that ultimately left many Virginians with a serious hangover—and eventually led to repeal. Join Library of Virginia staff members and guest speakers in this year’s two-day Teacher Institute focusing on the history of Prohibition in the commonwealth, as well as other Progressive Era reforms, including industrialization, child labor, woman suffrage, and immigration. Teachers will explore how to use primary sources to enhance student learning in their classrooms, learn about new digital resources available, and explore the Library of Virginia’s newest exhibition, Teetotalers & Moonshiners: Prohibition in Virginia, Distilled, on display from April 3, 2017, through December 2, 2017.

Detailed Schedule and travel information available soon. Contact Catherine Fitzgerald Wyatt (804)692-3999 or Emma Ito (804) 692-3726 for any questions.

Update: Lodging will be provided for the first 17 attendees who live 70 miles or more outside of Richmond city proper.
