John Prescott, History Programs Coordinator of the Union County Office of Cultural & Heritage Affairs, will speak on notable women from Union County in this survey of the county's history from a woman's perspective.  Learn about prominent figures and forgotten history. 

For instance, learn about the prominent doctor who created the most widely used test to assess the health of a newborn.  Did you know that Dr. Virginia Apgar grew up in Westfield?

Popular figures from entertainment, horticulture and more have their roots right here in Union County.  The talk will be held at 7 p.m., Tuesday, March 6, at the New Providence Memorial Library, 377 Elkwood Ave., New Providence. For more information, call 908-665-0311 or visit
