Join us on Sunday, March 24,  for “Of Kin and Cane,” a symposium in Hill Memorial Library to be held in conjunction with the exhibition of the same name.  The meeting offers an opportunity for history scholars and agriculture specialists and practitioners to explore historical aspects of sugar research, technology, and plantation management, as well as current day practices of a family sugar concern that has been in continuous operation for close to 200 years.  Speakers include Kenneth Gravois, Ph.D., Sugarcane Specialist with the LSU Ag Center; Richard Follett, Ph.D., Reader in American History, University of Sussex; John Gay, Co-owner St. Louis Planting and Vice-President of E.J. Gay Planting and Manufacturing Company; and E. Phelps Gay, President, E.J. Gay Planting and Manufacturing Company.  Pre-registration is not required.

The exhibition will be on display through July 6, 2013. See http://exhibitions.blogs.lib.lsu.edu/?page_id=798/ for a full description.
