The Louisville Branch of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis and the Kentucky Historical Society are offering a professional learning event led by economic historian David C. Wheelock on April 13 in Frankfort. Teachers can learn about 102 years of St. Louis Fed history and explore how to use it in their classrooms.

Wheelock is deputy director and a vice president of research at the St. Louis Fed and author of a history of the St. Louis Fed for a report marking its centennial. Among other topics, he will talk about the roles of the St. Louis Fed and the Federal Reserve System and how the St. Louis Fed became known as the “maverick” reserve bank.

The discussion will be followed by a question-and-answer session, a dinner and demonstrations by Erin Yetter, senior economic education specialist, on using Wheelock’s talk in the classroom.

The event is free, but registration is required. The registration deadline is March 31. Click here for more information or to register.
