Lessons from the Pauper Graves Presentation at The Healy House

December 9, 2023 @ 6:00 pm

Saturday, December 9 at 6 P.M. Join us for an evening with Professor Jim Walsh to discuss Lessons from the Pauper Graves: What 19th Century Irish Deaths Can Teach us about the 21st Century.
This presentation will detail the research done by Professor Jim Walsh and his students on the Catholic Pauper graves in Leadville’s Evergreen Cemetery and the journey behind the Leadville Irish Memorial. We will examine what was learned in this research about the lives of the paupers buried there, and relate this to the struggles that immigrant workers today face in mountain communities.
Refreshments will be served.
