The 7th Annual Henry D. Ormsby, III Seminar Series honors and recognizes Henry’s devotion and distinguished contributions to The Filson Historical Society. In the first seminar, we will view In the Name of Progress, a 30-minute documentary by the Rev. Al Shands, which was originally aired on WAVE-TV in the 1970s. In the Name of Progress touches on the loss of much of Louisville’s unique architectural heritage in the 1950s and 60s due to urban renewal.
