On the heels of The Rubber Souls presenting a concert of Beatles music Saturday night at the Smyrna Opera House, comes word of a 50th anniversary program celebrating the Fab Four in Dover.
The Delaware Public Archives, at 121 Duke of York St. in Dover, will celebrate with a program on Saturday, Oct. 6 at 10:30 a.m. featuring Delawarean and Beatle historian Joel Glazier.
Mr. Glazier, a resident of Wilmington, is a retired Delaware public school teacher who has been a Beatles fan since 1964, when the group first achieved recognition in America. His interest continued into his teaching career and The Beatles have been used in his classroom and as part of university courses he has taught.
He has met all four Beatles and saw the group in concert when they toured the United States in the mid-1960s. As a speaker with the Delaware Humanities Forum he has given talks on various aspects of The Beatles history at dozens of Delaware schools, libraries and for various social and educational groups.
Along with the presentation, the Delaware Public Archives will have a small, temporary display of documents from its collections about the protest movement of the 1960s.
The program is free and no reservations are required.
