“A Westward Wind: Christian Science Pioneers on the Pacific Coast”

An in-person talk by Heather Vogel Frederick

Longyear Museum, Chestnut Hill, Mass.
Monday, June 6
10 a.m.

Join Longyear’s director of research and publications for a talk on Christian Science “family history” as she examines the lives of early workers along the Pacific Coast, from British Columbia to Southern California. The story begins in 1885 at the flourishing Massachusetts Metaphysical College in Boston, Massachusetts, where Mary Baker Eddy’s clear teaching launched students whose healing work helped establish Christian Science across the West. You’ll learn the stories of Samuel Greenwood (British Columbia), Lou Aldrich (Portland, Oregon), Francis Fluno (Oakland, California), Sue Ella Bradshaw (San Francisco, California), John Filbert (Los Angeles, California), and Emma Stanton Davis and Emma Easton Newman (Riverside, California).

This talk is free, and registration is not required. The Museum will open at 9 a.m. on June 6, so please feel free to come early and browse the exhibits.
