Talk by Polly Wilbert and Pat Donahue
Members, Friends of Greenlawn
Polly and Pat, who together have led eight tours of Greenlawn Cemetery, will share what they’ve learned during Greenlawn research about wealthy benefactor Walter Scott Dickson, who gave Dickson Memorial Chapel and its adjacent conservatory to the city in memory of his wife Georgianna; the Rev. Jacob Stroyer, a slave from South Carolina, who after the Civil War ministered to blacks in Salem as the founder and preacher of the Salem Colored Mission; and Malcolm Harrison Miller, author of 3,500 poems in 54 mostly self-published books, who recently became the subject of a documentary film about his life and work.
