Tales from a Northern KY Clubhouse
Seckatary Hawkins
"A Quitter Never Wins and A Winner Never Quits." This would be your club slogan if you were part of the Seckatary Hawkins Fair & Square Club. The mystery-adventure novel series "Seckatary Hawkins," about a small-town Kentucky riverbank clubhouse, was good, clean fun for children in the early 1900s. 

Our Curator of Collections Jason French displays some pieces that we have acquired from the books' author, Robert Franc Shulkers, in this Curator's Chat .

Please subscribe to our YouTube channel and follow us on Facebook to see Jason's latest discoveries at BCM.

Lewis and Clark in Kentucky
Famed Expedition is the Subject of
BCM’s Brown Bag Luncheon Oct. 17
Did you know that, while serving as a frontier army officer in 1795, the young and soon-to-be famous explorer Meriwether Lewis was court-martialed for allegedly challenging a lieutenant to a duel during a drunken dispute? 

The 21-year-old Lewis was found not guilty of the charges, but his superiors decided to transfer him to a different rifle company to avoid any future incidents. His new commander turned out to be William Clark—the man who would later join him on his journey to the West.
Lewis’ and Clark’s discoveries and the importance of their cross-country mission will be the topic of the Brown Bag Luncheon by Jim Mallory, vice chairman of the Lewis and Clark Trust, Inc., on Thursday, October 17.

With more than 1,000 miles of the Lewis and Clark trek within its borders, Kentucky has the longest section of the trail in the east. Mallory, a past president of the Lewis and Clark Trail Heritage Foundation, will give an overview of the expedition and discuss its Northern Kentucky connections. Mallory has a lifelong interest in history, focusing on the Lewis and Clark era. He and his wife Paula have traveled the coast-to-coast trail of the Lewis and Clerk expedition since 1985.

The lunch and presentation will take place from noon to 1:30 p.m. in the museum’s TOYOTA Education Center. Doors open at 11:30 a.m. Guests should bring their own brown bag lunches. BCM will provide drinks, dessert and discourse. Cost: $3 for BCM members; $10 for future BCM members. Reservations requested at 859-491-4003.
