Trip to Cincinnati Museum Center
On Saturday, November 19, members of Phi Alpha Theta will travel to the Cincinnati Museum Center to visit the museum of the Cincinnati Historical Society and the OMNIMAX Theatre.
The History Museum features a walk-through simulation of the Cincinnati riverfront in the 1830s, including a 94-foot model of a steamboat. The museum also hosts "Cincinnati Goes to War," an exhibit about life in the U.S. during World War II. Playing in the theatre will be "The Magic of Flight," an IMAX-type film which gives viewers the sensation of flying at speeds of 1300 mph.
The exhibits are located in Union Terminal, a renovated railroad terminal from the 1930s. The building, a fine example of the art deco style, is now listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
Call one of the officers or Dr. Tallant to make your reservation. We will leave at 10:00 A.M. on November 21 from Giddings Circle.
Kentucky Regional Meeting: The Regional Meeting for Kentucky Chapters of Phi Alpha Theta will be held on April 10, 1999, at Cumberland College in Williamsburg. The Upsilon-Upsilon Chapter is the host.
The Gamma-Sigma chapter has been invited to present at least one student paper at the meeting. Presenting a paper at a Regional Meeting is great experience for people planning to go into historical study as a career. If you have any interest in participating, contact Dr. Tallant for details.
Spring Banquet: The annual Spring Banquet has been scheduled for April 6, 1999, at 5:00 P.M. in the Hall of Fame Room.
