An Evening with Heddi Vaughan Siebel
May 22 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm
The granddaughter of Dr. John Colin Vaughan, Heddi Vaughan Siebel, shares stories about her grandfather’s fascinating life and her efforts to retrace his footsteps. Dr. Vaughan was married to Peggy Wilson and lived in what is now the Wilson-Vaughan Hostess House in Marion. John Vaughan, a medical student from New York, joined the ill-fated Ziegler Polar Expedition under the command of artist/photographer Anthony Fiala. Fiala created photos evoking the heroic story and shot the first motion picture film in the arctic regions. Heddi documents the totality of this experience in many media: painting, installations, and filmmaking. Dinner buffet at 6pm. Pre-paid reservations required. $25 per person, cash bar. Program begins at 7:15pm.
