Cocktails with ClioThe third annual Cocktails with Clio will take place on 30 November 2012, from 6 to 9 PM. Named for the muse of history, this festive evening celebrates American history and the 221-year-old mission of the Society. Following an elegant cocktail buffet at the Society’s building, guests will proceed to the nearby Harvard Club for dessert and a conversation with cultural critic, Harvard scholar, host of PBS series Finding Your Roots, and MHS Overseer Henry Louis Gates, Jr.  As the evening progresses, Professor Gates will discuss his approach to writing and teaching history, his interest in tracing our nation’s roots through individual stories, and how he has used MHS collections in his research.

Tickets cost $200 per person. All net proceeds from the event will support the Society's outreach efforts.
