Who was “Typhoid Mary” and why did she get that nickname? What did Einstein really teach us?

Presentations about Albert Einstein and “Typhoid Mary” will provide for lively discussions in the upcoming sessions of UW Continuing Studies’ free Eloquence and Eminence lecture series.

Scheduled for Sundays, from 2-3 pm at the Pyle Center, 702 Langdon St., the lectures given by UW-Madison emeritus professors are open to the public.

On March 25, Daniel Siegel, emeritus professor, History of Science, will explore “Einstein Revisited.”

Judith Leavitt, emeritus professor, History of Medicine and Gender and Women’s Studies, will discuss “Typhoid Mary” on April 22.

Along with Continuing Studies, the 18th annual lecture series is sponsored by the Institute on Aging and the Anonymous Committee.

Refreshments will be served following the talks. No registration is required.
