2011 Historically Speaking
Published at: 2011 Historically Speaking
2011 Historically Speaking is the sixth annual volume of historical articles published in The Oak Ridger newspaper. Like others in this series, the weekly stories vary from purely historical event stories such as "The Forgotten Detachment" to human interest stories such as "He did what he was supposed to." Both of these tell stories about Bill Sergeant. There are stories of Biologist Alexander Hollaender's Sunday hikes, Peggy Heddleson's unique banners and the history of ORTEC, one of the many start up companies in Oak Ridge. Stories of Oak Ridge Institute for Continued Learning and the Guest House are also included. I was pleased to capture these details of Oak Ridge history and am glad to bring them to you in this annual book form.
