  • programOctober 27, 2017: —ROUNDERS TO BASEBALL
    Presented by Anne Barrett

    From Opening Day to last "out" at the World Series, baseball has excited and exasperated generations of its fans.  When were the rules of play standardized, where were games played before Fenway Park, and who won the first World Series? Join us as we trace the game’s evolution from the 19th century’s local “townball” teams to the formation of professional leagues and the emergence of early baseball’s greats, with a focus on New England’s own home team. This lively presentation includes slides that will make you feel as if you’re really there in the midst this fascinating history.

    Anne Barrett enjoys entertaining audiences with her lectures on a number of historical topics. She has brought her presentations to a variety of groups including the Kittery Historical & Naval Museum, Beverly Public Library, New London Historical Society, Nichols Village and Springfield Museum.

    Anne is Vice President of the Topsfield Historical Society, publisher of its newsletter Local Lore, and a monthly history columnist in Community Newspaper’s Tri Town Transcript. She is a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution, and a former Mrs. Essex County. Anne was named Storyteller of the Year by the North of Boston Convention and Visitors Bureau for her collaboration in developing the groundbreaking Spotlight on History pre-show education series for the North Shore Music Theater.

    She holds a B.S. cum laude from Colby-Sawyer College and an M.S. from Boston University.
