  6. Harrington Park Historical Society presents “Becoming George: The George Washington Manuscript Collection at Morristown National Historical Park.”

    April 3, 2017, 7:30 PM @ Harrington Park Library

    A lecture by Dr. Jude M. Pfister, Chief of Cultural Resources, Morristown National Historical Park, will be presented by the Harrington Park Historical Society on Monday, April 3. In his talk he will discuss the over 400 Washington manuscripts (including two from Martha) in the Park's archival collection. Learn how the collection was put together by organizations during the late 19th and early 20th centuries before being gifted to Morristown NHP. His presentation will include some special "show-and-tell" items. Hear how America's favorite founder found his voice, his character, and his reputation through the nib of his pen. Washington's papers, rather than clarifying the man, only deepen the mystery of this larger than life figure. Everything from his writing style to the way he crafted his signature evolved along with his many roles during the founding of the U.S. Dr. Pfister has been at Morristown since 2004 where he oversees the museum, archival, and library programs.
