A fall lecture series sponsored by the Daughters of Utah Pioneers will be presented at 1 p.m. on the first Wednesday of each month in the Pioneer Memorial Museum, 300 N. Main.
The topic Oct. 5 will be "Outlaws and Indians in Early Utah." November's program will feature "Utah Art and Artists."As part of the DUP's November schedule, a fund-raising concert has been set for Nov. 19 in Symphony Hall featuring world-renowned pianist Wladimer Jan Kochanski. The concert will be a benefit for the restoration and preservation of museum artifacts.
More than 200,000 artifacts fill the Pioneer Memorial Museum on Capitol Hill. Officials say each one needs to be cleaned, repaired, displayed, recorded and restored. The museum receives no outside financial aid, and officials say they hope the concert will provide the money needed to deal with the artifacts.
The DUP is also sponsoring a slide presentation and lecture program that is available to local schools at no charge. Officials hope the program will enhance the study of Utah history.
For non-school groups, the DUP also sponsors a lecture series that is available on request. A variety of subjects concerned with Utah's history and the founding and establishment of communities in the state can be scheduled.
