The program will include a welcome reception, a one-hour tour of the Tenement Museum, followed by refreshments and remarks from Simmons College Archivist and SLIS Professor, Jason Wood ’01LS, ’11SM.
Professor Wood will speak about John Simmons’ pioneering vision for preparing women to earn independent livelihoods. Simmons’ vision was inspired by his experience as an employer in the garment industry, which also employed many Lower East Side immigrants featured at the Tenement Museum.
