History of the Colleges in Highland Park

Dec 14
Wednesday 6:00 pm
Lisa (Elm) Taber, a graduate of Drake University with a major in history, while researching information for a novel, came across David Wiggin's, The Fall of Old Des Moines U. There wasn't much online, so she started a blog collecting information about the college ever since. Lisa is a member of the Des Moines Historical Society. Join us as she shares her research on the history of Highland Park College and Des Moines University as we celebrate 150 years of the Des Moines Public library. Space is limited. Please pre-register at or call 515-283-4152 press 3.
