It was 126 years ago that Maud May Babcock got off the train in Salt Lake City, recruited from Harvard by Brigham Young’s daughter, Suza Young Gates. At a time when women were held back by legal and social barriers, Maud May sailed fearlessly ahead. This determined, talented, international figure set the pace for students, politicians, businesses, fortune hunters and entertainers. Even today, echoes of her instruction in rhetoric, public speaking, and elocution can be found in radio, television, theater, academia and public office throughout the land.
The performance of "Legacy" will be held at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, January 11, 2018 at the Little Theatre inside the A. Ray Olpin Student Union Building at the University of Utah (200 Central Campus Drive). Convenient parking can be found in the visitors lot on the east side of the Union Building.
