Margaret Highland, Program Chair and Historian of the Anne Hutchinson Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution, Bronxville, NY, encourages “anyone that likes a good story, to come to the FREE program on Saturday, Feb. 7, 2015, 1PM” at the Yaeger Community Room of Bronxville Public Library, 201 Pondfield Road, for “The Invisible Irish of the 19th Century”, a talk about the history of Irish servants at historic Bartow Pell Mansion estate, led by their Docent, Douglas Hearle, an author in his own right.

Mr. Hearle, a distinguished Pelhamite, former President/CEO of Carl Byoir & Associates and Vice-Chairman of Hill & Knowlton (top public relations firms), who recently published a novel, “Outsourced”, based on his work as consultant to global governments and the CIA , has done extensive research into the lives of the hidden servants that fled dissolution and the potato famine which killed over 1 million people in Ireland. He has uncovered untold stories that promise to be very interesting!
