History in a Pint on July 23, 2019

Veterans Memorial Hall, a program of the St. Louis County Historical Society, announces its next event in the local history discussion series, History in a Pint. The presentation entitled “The Golden Anniversary of Apollo: 50 Years Since the ‘…Giant Leap for Mankind’”, will take place at Carmody Irish Pub and Brewing, and will begin at 5:30 pm on Tuesday, July 23rd.

The Golden Anniversary of Apollois the story of local US Navy photographer Pat Shaw who was assigned the aircraft carrier USS Hornet. His role onboard was that of photographer and he covered the splashdown and recoveries of both Apollo 11 and Apollo 12. With this being the 50th anniversary of the moon landings, Pat will enlighten us with experiences of mankind’s greatest achievement from a point of view that few were able to witness first hand. His stories and photographs capture the height of the race with the Soviets to be the first to land on the Moon and return safely back to Earth.

The event is free and open to the public. We advise guests to park in the parking ramp behind and connected to the Sheraton, which is across the street from Carmody’s.
