May 16, 7 PM - “Columbia University on Morningside Heights – The Early Years in Postcard Views” As the title implies, Mr. Susi takes us on a tour of Morningside Heights using vintage postcards he began collecting more than 20 years ago. Speaker: Michael V Susi, Assistant Vice President for Academic Affairs, Columbia University; local historian and postcard collector.
This series of talks, with discussion, is the result of collaboration between three organizations: Emeritus Professors in Columbia (EPIC); Columbia University School of Professional Studies; and Morningside Retirement and Health Services (MRHS). This is the second year for the series which is open to the public without charge.
Emeritus Professors in Columbia (EPIC) is a professional and social fellowship of people who have formally retired from their Columbia careers as university professors, researchers, and administrators but are still professionally active. Since its founding in 1998, EPIC has worked to continually expand its portfolio of activities and in 2017 launched its first Speakers Series in collaboration with the CU School of Professional Studies (SPS) Community Relations office.
Coordinated by Morningside Retirement and Health Services, the series is held at 100 LaSalle Street (aka 124th Street bet. Broadway/Amsterdam), Main Floor Room #MC (under green awning marked MRHS).
