Today Dr. Robert Putnam meets with President Obama. On Tuesday evening, the Harvard professor, 1959 Port Clinton High School graduate and 2012 National Humanities Medal of Honor winner, took time to have a conversation by video conference with a panel of Port Clinton leaders. At Ida Rupp Public Library, Putnam talked about his research and the recent New York Times article “Crumbling American Dreams” that featured Port Clinton. The information for the article was gathered for Putnam’s latest book, “Our Kids”, scheduled to be published in 2014.

Port Clinton Artists’ Club “Reflections of America” museum tour will take place on Wednesday, Sept. 18.

The Institute's holdings now exceed 20,000 individual works, and the Butler is known worldwide as "America's Museum."
