Lecture: A Century of Graverobbing: Dastardly Deeds at Historic Congressional Cemetery

Rebecca Roberts (Smithsonian Associates)

A former staffer and current Board Member of Historic Congressional Cemetery, Roberts has conducted extensive research on graverobbing in Washington DC, with particular attention to resurrectionists who sold stolen cadavers to local medical schools. In Roberts' surprisingly lively presentation, you'll learn about skull collectors, black magic enthusiasts, and why you should always write your name in your underwear.

Lecture is held in the Congressional Cemetery Chapel. An informal wine and cheese reception will be held beginning at 6:30 pm, and the lecture begins at 7 pm. $5 donation requested to help cover costs. We are no longer accepting RSVPs, but you can be added to the waitlist for this lecture here: goo.gl/forms/9B6yuS5RLDjTi6VF2
