The event, "From The Archive: Chasing Cherry Blossoms," will highlight the life of Eliza Scidmore, National Geographic magazine's first official female writer, photographer, and board member. Miss Scidmore was also instrumental in bringing cherry trees to Washington, DC. We're bringing her story to life through images from our photography archive, and with narration by archivist Sara Manco. Actress Anne Stone will join her and share Miss Scidmore's colorful commentary.
