Orphan Train

Lori’s interest in this topic began while teaching Children’s and Adolescent Literature for
Viterbo University when she met Mary McClain, an orphan train rider decedent who shared
her mother’s experience with teachers in Lori’s classes. Lori’s display includes vintage
children’s clothing similar to what might have been worn while traveling westward . She has
frequently visited the National Orphan Train Museum in Concordia , Kansas where she has
acquired many books and artifacts.
Time will be allotted for your questions.
