SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- On April 3, The History Museum in South Bend will offer "Insights in History – Forgotten Faces: Unknown People of our Past," which is open to the public.

The museum says that archivist Travis Childs will explore the lives of people from our community’s past, including William L. Kizer, Henry G. Christman, and Thelus M. Bissell.

The event starts at 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 3, and admission is $3 for the general public and $1 for members. Reservations are required by April 1. 

"A tour of the exhibit The New Century of Progress will be offered," said the museum's Director of Marketing Marilyn Thompson. "In its first 100 years, the city of South Bend grew to be a hub of science, finance, industry, and transportation. The New Century of Progress, which explores 1920 through the present, focuses on the area’s second century of innovative advances."

Insights in History is a monthly series that features a lecture in conjunction with an exhibit at The History Museum.
