Thursday, March 20th, 2014

Kent Library’s Spring 2014 Athenaeum Series continues Wednesday, March 26, 2014 at noon in Sadie’s Place with Dr. Bonnie Stepenoff, Professor Emeritus from the Department of History, presenting “Sadie Kent: Designing Woman.” Sadie Kent served as head librarian at Southeast Missouri State University from 1910 to 1943, when she retired from full-time employment. During her tenure, she submitted the floor plans that were used (with some modifications by the architect) for the new library building in 1939. Born in Des Arc, Arkansas, in 1873, Kent pursued higher education and success in a time when women were just beginning to emerge as leaders in professional life.

These open forums, public lectures, and discussions were originally popular in Greece, but eventually spread to Rome and Western Europe. Kent Library’s series showcases the expertise of campus faculty, staff, and students. All events are free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
