An Evening Celebrating the Ticknors

June 26, 2002, Massachusetts Historical Society, Boston

The second meeting of the Ticknor Society celebrated the Ticknors—George Ticknor and his daughter, Anna Ticknor—for whom the club was named. The meeting featured speakers Professor Sally Schwager of the Harvard Graduate School of Education, Peter Accardo of the Houghton Library, and Ken Carpenter, retired from the Harvard University Library. Hosts Peter Drummey and Bill Fowler of the Massachusetts Historical Society provided a wondrous array of edible delights and liquid refreshment which, when balanced with talk of book collectors and the comradeship of like-minded book lovers, made for a great event.
