History à la Carte: Mysteries of the Morton Collection
Have a little history with your lunch! History à la Carte is monthly a series of 45-minute talks about a variety of topics—come learn about the Lost Colony, bitters and cocktails, World War I, North Carolina pottery, and famous (and infamous) North Carolinians, just to name a few! Our speakers run the gambit, they are often business owners, nonprofit directors, museum curators, or professors, and provide exciting perspectives to their talk. Join us in the Longleaf Classroom (North Carolina Museum of History) at noon every second Wednesday of the month.
Bring your lunch (or purchase a boxed lunch under "Get Tickets"); we've got the drinks!
Hugh Morton’s photographs are full of mysteries and secrets, some known only to him. Fortunately, while processing the Morton collection and managing the associated blog, A View to Hugh, Stephen Fletcher, the Photographic Archivist for the North Carolina Collection Photographic Archives at UNC-Chapel Hill's Wilson Library, has made some discoveries—and deductions.
Be sure to take time to explore the Photographs by Hugh Morton: An Uncommon Retrospective exhibit before or after Fletcher's History à la Carte talk.
If I bring a lunch, will I have a place to eat? Yes! We have tables set up for you to eat comfortably.
What are my transport/parking options getting to the event? There is a Visitor Parking Lot at the intersection of E. Jones and Wilmington Street. View the map here.
