Speaker series at Sacramento Public Library

For those planning to visit Central Library (828 I Street) during Archives Crawl on October 6, the library will be hosting several speakers who will present on a range of transportation topics.  The talks will take place in the Library Galleria and no registration is required.

11:30 a.m. - "Southern and Central Pacific’s Sacramento Railyards" by Mary Helmich
Helmich’s discussion will center on the CP and SP shops and their contribution to the 19th and 20th century explosion of rail in the west.

1:00 p.m. - "Amanda Preuss: Sacramento’s Pioneering Auto Adventurer" by Amanda DeWilde Sacramentan Amanda Preuss was an auto pioneer who in 1916 set the speed record (for man or woman) for traveling solo across the United States by car. DeWilde will discuss Sacramento’s early auto culture, Preuss’ Sacramento roots and her record-breaking journey.

2:30 p.m. - "From Jackrabbits to Jennies: A brief history of early aviation in Sacramento, 1905-1930" by James Scott
The Sacramento Valley’s mild climate was tailor made for flight and, from 1905 to 1930, the Capital City quickly reaped the benefits of the entertainment, transport and defense industries that aviation created. Scott will provide an overview of this era with a particular focus on military aviation.
