Ask the Historians

January 28, 2022 - 11:00am11:30am

Join us for our web series where OPRF Museum historians answer your questions about Oak Park and River Forest history.

This month's episode will be on Friday, January 28 at 11 a.m. CST, when OPRF Museum Executive Director Frank Lipo will explain the Oak Park origins of America's favorite friend, the late Betty White. Also, Operations Manager Rachel Berlinski will share the story of the museum's newest artifact, which was used in Oak Park's birthday celebration for Betty White earlier this month.

This program is free for all and will last around 30 minutes. You must register in advance. Contact us on our website and tell us you would like to attend the live program. We will follow up with a link to join this Zoom meeting.

If you have an OPRF history question you'd like answered, click here and send it to us on our website. We will be preparing our answers in advance and may feature yours on a future show.
