Our Featured Presentation:  Commonwealth of Catastrophe - A Brief History of Floods, Fires, and Other Disasters in Massachusetts.

It has been nearly 400 years since the establishment of Massachusetts and the birth of Boston. In that time the city and commonwealth have grown and flourished. Yet, that success has often been tempered by disasters, both natural and man-made. We are delighted to have Paolo Di Gregorio discuss some of the significant, memorable, and legendary disasters, from 18th century earthquakes, to 19th century fires, to 20th century storms.

Mr. Do Gregorio, known as "the Artifactual Scholar", is an historian, archaeologist, and popular lecturer with a passion for telling stories from our past. Mr. Di Gregorio has presented lectures on diverse historical and cultural topics at colleges and community centers throughout Eastern Massachusetts. He has also been a Guest Speaker aboard cruise ships on the Great Lakes, Chesapeake Bay, and coastal New England.
