Learn about 102 years of St. Louis Fed history, explore how to use it in your classroom and earn professional development credit at a dinner event.

The Louisville Branch of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis and the Kentucky Historical Society are teaming up to bring you a discussion led by economic historian David C. Wheelock.

Wheelock is deputy director and a vice president of Research at the St. Louis Fed and author of a history of the St. Louis Fed for a report marking its centennial. Among other topics, he will talk about the roles of the St. Louis Fed and the Federal Reserve System and how the St. Louis Fed became known as the "maverick" Reserve bank.

Following the discussion will be a Q&A session and dinner, as well as demonstrations by Erin Yetter, senior economic education specialist, on using Wheelock’s talk in the classroom. Teachers will receive a certificate for 2.5 hours of professional development credit.

The event is free, but registration is required by April 6, 2016.
