Join Clements Library Assistant Curator of Manuscript, Jayne Ptolemy as she hosts an interactive discussion focused on aging. The conversation will focus on a remarkable historical document written by a 19th-century physician, Vine Utley. His notebook, entitled “Observations on Old People 80 Years of Age,” details the interviews he conducted with the aging population in Connecticut, between 1809 and 1827.

His notes give glimpses into the biographies, habits, and health of octogenarians in the early 19th century. We will share our reactions and reflect together. A typed transcript will be shared upon registration.

This class meets on Wednesday, March 24.

Pre-registration is required via the OLLI website or phone. A link to access the study group will be e-mailed to you approximately one week prior to the first session.
