Kimberly Guise presents 75th Anniversary of Bataan
Assistant Director of Curatorial Services Kimberly Guise will address the 75th anniversary of the start of the Bataan Death March, when 75,000 Filipino and American troops were marched 60 miles into captivity. She will be joined by artifact donor Jon Frank as they discuss POWs in the Pacific, focusing primarily on Frank's father, Charles, who was one of 12 US Army veterinarians in the Philippines on December 7, 1941, having arrived in Manila just 10 days before the attack.
Lunchbox Lectures are free and open to the public on every first and third Wednesday of the month. For more information call 504-528-1944 x 463.
