Presidents in Unexpected Places in DC and Nearby

Speaker:  Ralph Buglass

Washington DC is synonymous with the federal government--with the White House and its occupant at the center of it all. But you can find past presidents--at least memorials or reminders of them--in all kinds of surprising places that few tourists visit--and even many native Washingtonians don't know about. Ralph Buglass will cover a good number of those little-known spots, including some in Northwest DC, in this is richly illustrated talk.

Ralph Buglass teaches lifelong learning courses at American University, Johns Hopkins University, Montgomery College, and Frederick Community College. Ralph is a frequent speaker for Montgomery History on a variety of local history topics. He also is a volunteer researcher for Peerless Rockville, the non-profit historic preservation organization for Montgomery County’s seat of government. In 2020, with Peerless Rockville, he co-authored Images of America: Rockville, a pictorial history of the city’s 250 years. A Montgomery County native, he graduated from Winston Churchill High School, then earned a BA in American history from Cornell University and an MA in journalism from American University.
