Eastern Air Lines Exhibit Opening with Speaker Martha Hamilton

The Wings of Man: The Eastern Air Lines Experience
Exhibit opening reception September 7, 2017, with guest speaker Martha Hamilton

We are pleased to invite you to a discussion with Martha Hamilton about the days leading up to Eastern Air Lines’ closure in 1991. A journalist for the Washington Post at the time, Hamilton closely covered the airline’s uncertain trajectory until its final flight. To give Eastern’s demise broader context, she’ll consider what works best to nurture competitive markets: deregulation or keeping businesses from growing so big that they dominate. Hamilton currently writes for the Pulitzer-prize winning International Consortium of Investigative Journalists.

Register by September 4 (spaces are limited).
