PROGRAM: Maisey Bass & the Orphan Train Movement
PRESENTER: Gail Garmon
Gail Garmon, a retired teacher, will portray Marietta Lowry Bass, nicknamed “Maisey.”
She was an amazing woman! From 1918 to 1933, Mrs. Bass served as the southwestern field agent for the New York Children’s Aid Society. In addition, she served as an agent for Texas orphanages. She traveled across the Midwest,
finding homes for underprivileged children. This work became known as the Orphan Train Movement.
Join us as we step back in history to learn about the children and families who were part of the Orphan Train Movement and it’s connection to our area!
