On Thursday, September 19th the Tate House Museum welcomes Dr Richard Kahn as he presents “Stroudwater’s own Dr. Jeremiah Barker (1752-1835)”, the last of the Tate House Summer Lecture Series. Dr Barker was a Revolutionary War veteran and lived at 1168 Westbrook Street just down the road from the Tate House where he practiced medicine.
Dr. Kahn’s book is titled History of Diseases in the District of Maine 1772-1820: The Unpublished work of a Rural Physician in New England and is due to be published later this year. The lecture will be an overview and will focus on the contents of his book.
The lecture takes place in the Means House parlor, across the street from the Tate House Museum 1267 Westbrook St. Portland, ME. Admission is $15 and $12 for members and volunteers. Seating for the lecture is limited, so please call the museum at 207-774-6177 for reservations.
