Opening Day/ Sue Oertli presentation

Sue Oertli will took us on a very personal visit to the 1904 World's Fair. She showed many antique gl*** (magic lantern) slides have been in her family for generations. Her mother, Dorothy Daniels Birk, researched the slides and began giving local lectures on the Fair, enhanced by the gl*** slides, which had to be fed individually by a projectionist. In 1979, Dorothy wrote a book, The World Came to St. Louis: A Visit to the 1904 World's Fair, based on her slide program to commemorate the Fair's 75th anniversary. It has been reprinted many times over the last thirty years and is a wonderful introduction to the Fair. Dorothy's program turned out to be very popular and was presented hundreds of times. Sue's husband had two sets of 35mm slides made from the original gl*** slides - one for the Oertli's and one for the US Patent Office. Dorothy always insisted on using the originals. On April 30th, Sue continued the family tradition by presenting to us her version of her mother's lecture, along with the 35mm slides. (Hits: 9490)
