Third Thursday Talk: Bertlyn Bosley – A 20th Century Pioneer By Terri Marlow

Thursday, August 19th, 2021 7pm – 8pm (EST)

Today we mostly remember Bertlyn as Stewart’s sister and “silent” partner in the renovation of The Castle. This presentation will illustrate that Bertlyn was so much more – a humble life-long learner, a creative educator, an empathetic collaborator, a selfless leader, a world traveler, a determined visionary – to name a few of her identities. Some of Bertlyn’s life-changing accomplishments include: creating the first public health nutrition program in NC that became a model for the nation; achieving national and international recognition for her field work and exemplary nutrition education programs; and establishing successful programs to improve the diet, health and well-being of Native Americans and peoples across Central and South America. Attend this session to learn more about her amazing and admirable story.

After her 40+ years as a high school Spanish teacher, she now enjoys learning about Marietta and history in general through the many and varied Castle activities: the Teas, Third Thursdays, Cemetery Tours, Day Trips, “Day at the Castle” and History Camp activities, ETC., ETC.
