“How the Dead Speak to Us” w Old Pine Conservancy Historian Dan Campbell
September 8 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
EVENT WILL BE HELD RAIN OR SHINE. IF THE WEATHER IS VERY BAD, WE’LL HOLD THE TALK IN THE CHURCH. PLEASE BRING A MASK.
On Wed. September 8, the Association of Philadelphia Tour Guides (APT) will kick off its monthly meeting at 7 pm with a talk by Old Pine Conservancy Historian Dan Campbell, “How the Dead Speak to Us.” The talk will be at Old Pine Street Presbyterian Church, 412 Pine St., Philadelphia, PA 19106. At this point, plans are to hold the talk inside the church, but if covid becomes a concern, the talk will be moved outdoors to the burial ground.
Dan Campbell received his B.A. and M.A. in American History from Rutgers University and his Ph.D. in American History from Temple University. He also received a J.D. from John Marshall Law School. He operated his own law office following his judicial clerkship in Gloucester County, N.J., and later worked for the New Jersey Civil Service Commission.
He transferred to managing New Jersey state historic sites and performed that at various sites until retiring in 2010. He taught history as an adjunct at Rutgers University and Stockton State University.
After moving to Philadelphia in 2018 he joined Old Pine Street Presbyterian Church and discovered he has eight ancestors buried in the graveyard. He has been a member of the Old Pine Conservancy since 2018 and has participated in writing articles, organizing materials, creating an audio tour, giving tours, and acting as Treasurer.
Following the talk will be the APT meeting and some social time. APT meetings are open to aspiring and working tour guides as well as anyone with an interest in Philadelphia-focused history.
Attend one meeting for free and then it is $50 to join the association for the year or $10 per monthly meeting event. Please join us for convivial company, good food, fascinating presentations, and lively discussions.
APT has decided to waive 2021 membership fees for all 2020 members. New members are welcome to register for 2021 on the APT website.
