Historical dialogue featuring Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Portrayed by Dr. Melinda Grube & President Theodore Roosevelt, Portrayed by Gib Young

We are proud to have Women’s Rights National Historical Park as a sponsor again this year. The M’Clintock House on East Williams Street was the home of Thomas and Mary Ann M’Clintock from 1836-1856. The family were active Quaker abolitionists, actively engaged in the Underground Railroad, and were major organizers of the first Woman’s Rights Convention held in Seneca Falls, NY, in July of 1848.

 

 

On Saturday at 1:15 AND Sunday at Noon, The beautiful harmonies and songs of Merry Mischief from by gone times will set the mood in advance of the characterizations of Elizabeth Cady Stanton and President Theodore Roosevelt.

 Step back in time with music and learn from the wisdom of those who have tread the stairs of politics and women’s rights at this historic museum.

 

At the M’Clintock House at 1:45 pm and 3:00 pm Saturday, May 26th and 12:30 pm Sunday, May 27th, there will be Historical dialogues on women’s rights and women’s suffrage featuring Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Portrayed by Dr. Melinda Grube & President Theodore Roosevelt, 26th President of the United States, Portrayed by Gib Young.

 

 

Melinda Grube focuses on the life and work of suffragist and freethinker Elizabeth Cady Stanton, who helped to organize the first Woman’s Rights Convention in her hometown of Seneca Falls, New York, in 1848.  Melinda Grube is an adjunct lecturer in history at Cayuga Community College in Auburn, New York, and a longtime interpreter of regional women’s-rights history.

 

Besides the physical resemblance of Theodore Roosevelt – circa 1915 – Mr. Young has been able to develop the vocal and movements of his subject to a high degree.  Mr. Young has appeared before audiences from Boston to Seattle and from Houston to Marquette.  He has had the honor of appearing at White House, Mt. Rushmore Natl. Memorial, Devils Tower Natl. Monument, Jewel Cave Natl. Monument, Washington’s Mt. Vernon, Lincoln’s Boyhood Home in Indiana, Lincoln’s Springfield, Ill. home, US Grant’s home in St. Louis, the Ottawa Ohio Wildlife Refuge, the JFK Library, the Smithsonian’s American History Museum, and Ft. Caspar in Wyoming to name just a few venues on his resume.

 Here is a sample from the 2017 dialogues:
