Veteran’s Day at the Cape Ann Museum

September 22, 2016 ~ Cape Ann Museum

A call for wartime letters and photographs.

On Friday, November 11 – Veteran’s Day – the Cape Ann Museum will host a series of special programs in appreciation of the men and women of Cape Ann who have served or are serving our country in the military. The citizens of Cape Ann have a long history of service – from the Revolutionary War to current conflicts.

For this day, the Museum is creating a short film to be screened. The film will pair photographs – from the Civil War to today – with readings from letters written home by men and women on the front.  We are reaching out to the community to help supplement this project with photographs and letters you may have from all military conflicts, but especially those since the Civil War.

Anyone caring to share photographs and letters is asked to bring them to the Museum’s library on Wednesday, October 5 or Thursday, October 6, from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. where Museum staff will scan them for inclusion in the film. Submitted items can be picked up on Wednesday, October 18 or Thursday, October 20, or they can be donated to the Museum to be preserved in the archives.

Architect Eleanor Raymond: A Pioneer in the Field

Thursday, September 29

7:00 p.m.

The life and accomplishments of Eleanor Raymond (1887–1989), a pioneering woman in the field of architecture during the mid-20th century, will be the subject of a talk presented by documentary film maker Lyda Kuth. A graduate of the Cambridge School of Art and Landscape Architecture for Women, Eleanor Raymond was a noted innovator partnering with solar energy researcher Dr. Maria Telkes to design one of the first successful solar-heated buildings in the Northeast. On Cape Ann, Raymond designed homes for artist Natalie Hays Hammond, anthropologist Carlton S. Coon and a summer cottage for herself overlooking Gloucester’s outer harbor. Lyda Kuth is an independent filmmaker and Executive Director of the LEF Foundation, which supports New England independent documentary filmmakers. She has been recognized by the Massachusetts Cultural Council with the prestigious Commonwealth Award and honored by Women in Film and Video New England with an Image Award.
