How did a Midwest industrialist form a lasting connection with a Mideast Christian sect, bringing a vast collection of ancient artifacts to Three Oaks?
The story of E. K. Warren and the Samaritans is as fascinating as it is unlikely, and will unfold at 5:30 PM on Friday, May 26 at Three Oaks Heritage Hall (8 E. Linden Street).
Tad Boehmer, Curator of Rare Books at Michigan State University's Stephen O. Murray & Keelung Hong Special Collections, has read much of Warren’s correspondence regarding the Samaritans. His illustrated talk will include images of the manuscripts and artifacts Warren collected (one is more than a thousand years old!) and displayed in his hometown, despite objections from some in the Samaritan community.
Admission is $5 for members of The Region of Three Oaks Museum, $20 for non-members (admission includes a membership).
