Our speakers for August 11 will be Mr. Lawrence Stipek and Ms. Kristin Brown. Mr. Stipek is the Director of the Office of Mapping and Geographic Information for Loudoun County and Ms. Brown is the Division Manager for the Office of Mapping and Geographic Information for the County of Loudoun. They will discuss a unique project of the Loudoun Museum dealing with "Story Map" technology. Story Maps is an application that lets you combine authoritative maps with narrative text, images, and multimedia content that make it easy to harness the power of maps and geography to tell a story that engages and inspires the audience. The story map they will discuss is the seven letters in the collection of the museum collectively known as the Lucas-Heaton letters. The letters were written in the 1830's between two previously enslaved brothers in Liberia and two brothers in Purcellville, Virginia who freed them.
