Bill Barker: Meet Thomas Jefferson

March 13, 2007


The Hauenstein Center brought Thomas Jefferson out to “northwestern Virginia” (which would become Michigan) on March 12th and 13th, 2007.  Colonial Williamsburg’s Bill Barker is the best character interpreter of Jefferson there is, and for two days he wowed audiences in Grand Rapids, Lansing, and East Lansing.  Participating in the Grand Rapids leg of the event were the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Library and Museum, the Gerald R. Ford Foundation, and Remembering the Crossings.
