Museum meeting

The Old Independence Regional Museum will convene its Annual Meeting and program at 2 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 5 at the museum. Author, professor, and noted regional historian Dr. Brooks Blevins will introduce his newly printed and much anticipated third installment of his Ozark history trilogy. “The History of the Ozarks, Volume 3: The Ozarkers” offers an authoritative appraisal of the modern Ozarks and its people.” Blevins tells the cultural history of the Ozark people and proposes that poverty and geographic barriers were the true inhibitors to advancement in the region rather than a lack of progressive spirit. The author explores the idea that the small minority of people who held fast to the old ways disproportionately influenced the stereotype of Ozarkers being throwbacks who were resistant to change.
