Terrace Hill has received funding from Humanities Iowa to host a free, educational presentation entitled American Dreamer: The Life and Times of Henry A. Wallace. Join us on Monday, March 13 at 5:00 pm in the Terrace Hill Drawing Room for the program presented by Iowa actor, Tom Milligan.
In this one-act play based on the award-winning book of the same name by Senator John C. Culver and John Hyde, actor Tom Milligan portrays Henry A. Wallace, the agricultural innovator and founder of Pioneer Hi-Bred seed corn company who became US Secretary of Agriculture and later Vice President under Franklin Roosevelt. Admired by many and later branded as a Socialist during his controversial 1948 campaign for the presidency, Wallace always held out a vision for the future.
Registration to physically attend the performance has reached capacity and is now closed. Viewers may watch the livestreamed performance on the Terrace Hill Facebook page.
