2018 Community History Brown Bag Lunch Series

Pack your lunch and join us for the LAST Brown Bag Community History Lunch Series of 2018!

On July 12th from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m., we will meet at Promont for a presentation titled “Meet Miss Aletheia Pattison”, presented by GMAHS member Barbara Burke. 

Aletheia Pattison was the oldest daughter of Gov. John M. Pattison. Born in 1881, she spent her childhood years living at Promont, in Milford, OH. After graduating from Vassar in 1903, she lived a life of what could surely be called “of adventure”. Aletheia moved overseas to provide aid and relief to war-ravaged France in WW1 and her desire to help others eventually took her to Greece and Poland, as well. 

Upon her return to the area in 1947, settling in at the Pattison family property near Owensville, OH, Aletheia continued her generous relief efforts through fundraising, until her death in 1978. 

Come on up to the Promont Museum and hear the stories of Aletheia Pattison – daughter, philanthropist, and adventurer!
