Tiffin, Ohio — The next program in the Seneca County Museum’s speaker series will be held October 28th.

Rodney Young will present a program based on his newly published  research report on Louisa Fast.

To the best of his knowledge, this is the most recent publication on Louisa in the last 40 years and provides some new information on her life.

Fast had an interesting life. She was an activist and participated in the Women’s Suffrage movement, traveled the world, served as a librarian, and wrote a book on early Tiffin homes.

The Louisa K. Fast Park, located just east of city limits on State Route 101, is named after her.

The free program will be held in the Fort Ball Room at the Museum, 28 Clay Street, beginning at 7:00 p.m.

After the presentation, Mr. Young will be available to sign copies of his research report on Louisa Fast which will be for sale in the Gift Shop.

Mr. Young will share several inaccuracies previously written about Louisa.

A portion of his presentation will include an audio recording of an interview with Miss Fast.

Fast died in Tiffin on Nov. 6, 1979, at the age of 101.
