Regan was inspired to interpret Lydia Rodney’s life in the upcoming Victorian Friday’s program by an article that she read in the Cape Gazette ten years ago. Since she began working for the Society, Regan kept Rodney’s story in the back of her mind and recently researched her life using LHS’s archival tools. Her depiction of the 19th Century schoolteacher will begin at 1 p.m. on the first Friday in May.
