Dr. Tim Kovalcik to Speak on “Death at the Springs
The Eureka Springs Historical Museum invites members and the public to a presentation by former Eureka resident Dr. Tim Kovalcik, on Monday evening, July 28th, at 6 PM, at the Inn of the Ozarks Convention Center.
A former Eureka resident, Dr. Kovalcik is the Distingished Griswold Professor of History at Millikin University in Decatur, Illinois.
The subject of his talk will be “Death at the Springs: Early accounts of Politicians and Partisans who came to Eureka and Were Not Healed”. Primary sources for his subject were discovered in the museum archives as well as in a nationwide data base of newspapers from 1879-1883.
In 2012 and again in 2013 he spent two weeks during the summer at the museum doing research while leading two student interns from Milliken in working on archival records.
Tim is a proud graduate of Eureka Springs High School class of 1992, a Millikin Graduate in 1996, and received his PH.D. At the University of Bristol in the United Kingdom.
He is the son of Anne and the late John Kovalcik of Eureka Springs.
The event is free to members and non-members alike. Non members are welcome to leave a donation for the museum's operating fund.
