Event Details

Lisa (Elm) Taber, a graduate of Drake University with a major in history, while researching information for a novel, came across David Wiggins' "The Fall of Old Des Moines U". There wasn't much online, so she has been blogging and collecting information about the college ever since. Lisa is a member of the Des Moines Historical Society. Join us as she shares her research on the history of Highland Park College and Des Moines University.
