Attending a Presentation or
Scheduling a Talk for your Organization

Meeting interesting people and telling them stories of our state's past is one of Walter Woodward's favorite duties as state historian. If you'd like to attend one of Walt's upcoming talks, check the Current Talk Schedule.

If you'd like to have Walt give a presentation to you're group, there are a number of different historical lecture topics related to Connecticut history for  you to choose from. Especially engaging are a number of new presentations incorporation presentations, images, and live music, which Walt often presents with a handful of guest musicians. (Many people don't know this, but in his younger years Woodward  was a hit country music songwriter.)  More information on Walt's critically-acclaimed musical presentations can be found here: The Band of Steady Habits website.  

Most lectures last from 45 minutes to an hour.  Generally these are richly illustrated through an accompanying Power Point slide show. Walt will bring his own computer and LCD projector, but organizations should provide a stand for the computer, a projection screen, and extension cords and/or power strips sufficient for two plugs.  

If Walt is speaking on his own, he will require reimbursement for his travel expenses from Hartford. Musical programs that feature additional musicians will require additional reimbursement. Please contact the Office of the State Historian for details.
