Walter O'Malley and Robert Moses: The Loss of the Dodgers Reconsidered

Mar 23, 2010 11:41 AM | 0 comments

Join us on Wednesday night March 24th, at 7pm for an illustrated talk by Robert E. Murphy.

Lamenting the removal of the Dodgers to Los Angeles in 1957 has been a major pastime among traumatized fans for 53 years. But who was to blame?

After poring relentlessly through archives, original news stories, and government documents, Robert Murphy, author of After Many a Summer: The Passing of the Giants and Dodgers and a Golden Age in New York Baseball, gives the most fully-researched answer to that question yet offered.

Seating is limited so come early to meet the author and enjoy wine and cheese.
