Food History: Bertlyn’s Travels

Monday, September 30th 6pm

Dr. Bertlyn Bosley led a fascinating life. She traversed the globe as one of the first high-ranking female nutritionists. Her groundbreaking career took her to Central and South America, the Caribbean, Native American reservations, and beyond, teaching the benefits and practices of healthy eating to children of different cultures. In retirement, she joined her brother Stewart in their hometown of Marietta to save a historic landmark, The Castle. Join us for a multi-course meal exploring the international cuisine of Bertlyn’s travels accompanied by presentations highlighting Bertlyn’s life, career, and the food of the countries she visited. Included will be a small exhibit of Bertlyn’s souvenirs from her travels.
