History One Moment at a Time

Modern Times at the Neill-Cochran House Museum returns for its eleventh season to examine the style, politics, and sweeping technological changes of the middle of the 20th century. Distinguished speakers join us from the Briscoe Center for American History, UT Austin, St. Edward’s University, the Texas Historical Commission, Ohio State University, and Austin’s own Umlauf Sculpture Garden to offer their insights into this often overlooked period of American and Texas History.
