Richmond First 100th anniversary speaker: John V. Moeser (April 10, 2019)

Speaker pictureJohn V. Moeser is Professor Emeritus of Urban Studies and Planning at VCU where he taught for 34 years. Upon his retirement, he was invited to become Senior Fellow at the Bonner Center for Civic Engagement at the University of Richmond where he served for 12 years. Altogether during his 46 years, he taught classes, wrote books, journal articles, and multiple commentaries dealing with race, poverty, politics, and political power in Richmond and the Urban South. He has been extensively involved in state and local government commissions and multiple non-profit organizations.


(Your memorabilia, that is.)

As part of the celebration of the one hundredth anniversary of its existence, the Richmond First Club is seeking memorabilia from those years - programs, membership rosters, correspondence, newspaper clippings, photographs, etc. - to be placed in an archival box for storage. The box will be opened fifty or one hundred years hence so that members of the club then can learn what their ancestors, we and our predecessors, were doing to enlighten, at first, citizens of the City of Richmond and, now, of the greater Richmond metropolitan area about ideas and efforts that might improve governmental practices and their lives.

Contributions will be collected at the club's one hundredth anniversary gala at the Branch House Museum of Architecture and Design on the evening of April 2 or at the club's one hundredth anniversary luncheon meeting at Willow Oaks Country Club on April 10. So please search for RFC memorabilia to help the club establish its posterity.
