WPC Map Society Meeting – Sept. 13

Tuesday evening, 7:15 p.m., September 13, 2016 – Chapel Hill, NC.
Join us for Claude Joseph Sauthier: his life and activity in North Carolina, by independent scholar and author, Stewart Dunaway. This presentation will review Sauthier’s life activity from his childhood home of Strasbourg, France to North Carolina, New York, and England. Mr. Dunaway will describe Sauthier’s roles at Tryon Palace, during the War of the Regulation, and during the American Revolution. A brief review of Sauthier’s ten town maps of North Carolina will be presented. Mr. Dunaway will bring high resolution color facsimiles of all of Sauthier’s town maps for viewing after the presentation. This presentation provides a sampling from Mr. Dunaway’s recent book, Claude J. Sauthier and his maps of North Carolina – An interpretive Guide.

Mary Morrow, a long-time WPCMS member and map collector, will get the program started at 7:15 p.m. with a glimpse into the world of map collecting and a display of some of her favorite maps. Please join us in the auditorium at Carolina Meadows. A reception will follow the presentations.
