I attended the historical talk and it was quite fascinating. Ms. Carmody was well versed in the subject matter and there was a good discussion on the topic. The talk mostly covered topics from the book Hidden in Plain View, by Jacqueline L. Tobin and Raymond G. Dobard. ( book is available at Amazon.com )I can't wait until the next "historical talk"
