The keynote speaker will be Robert Fieseler, author of
. Tinderbox is the third book to be written about the fire and positions the narrative of the tragic arson within a national context.
In addition to Fieseler’s address, the Archives Project will hold Officer and Board of Directors elections. The annual meeting also typically features a brief summary of the Project’s accomplishments in the last year and an announcement of upcoming events, including the honoree of this year’s Oracle Gala.
