Apr 22, 2008 10:17 AM | Print

Come and hear the fascinating history of Mentholatum and how it helped to "heal" the city of Wichita in body as well as spirit.

Learn how a stove-top experiment by A.A. Hyde created a product produced in Wichita and known worldwide.

And find out about the philanthropy of Hyde, who devoted his life to giving away the wealth he gained from Mentholatum.

A.A. Hyde's grandson, John Hyde, will share this fascinating story, along with rare images of early Wichita, from 2-4 p.m. Sunday, April 27, in Wichita State University's special collections, lower level of Ablah Library.

Hyde is a native Wichitan and Professor Emeritus of History at Williams College in Massachusetts.

Admission is free and refreshments will be served. For more information, please call (316) 978-3586.

For more information, contact Stephanie Sauls, Library Dean's Office, (316) 978-3586 or stephanie.sauls@wichita.edu.
