The Perinton Historical Society will host The Illustrious Maud Humphrey, presented by Sharon Dwyer Buzard on Tuesday, March 21, 2023 at 7:00pm at the Fairport Museum, 18 Perrin Street, Fairport. Born in Rochester, New York, in 1868 to a prominent family, Maud Humphrey studied art in her young years and was working professionally publishing illustrations and greeting cards while in her teens. Later, after pursuing studies in New York and Paris, she became a world-famous illustrator and often was the highest paid woman in America. She married cardiologist and heart surgeon, Dr. Belmont DeForest Bogart from Watkins Glen in 1898. Their first child, a boy born in 1900, was named with their two surnames: Humphrey Bogart. You are invited to hear her fascinating life story illustrated with photographs of her family and artworks from her many publications. This event is free and is open to the public.
