Zoom Presentation: Exploring the Life and Legacy of Alice Gray, Northwest Indiana’s “Diana of the Dunes” Online
More than 100 years ago, Alice Mabel Gray left her city life in Chicago, choosing instead to live in an abandoned shanty along the wild shoreline of the Indiana Dunes. For the next 10 years, as she explored her beloved Dunes, she withstood both natural hardships and those created by a relentless, sensation-driven press. She became known as “Diana of the Dunes,” and her exploits in the region have since become the stuff of legends, ghost stories, and books. Participants in the online presentation will learn about the life and legacy of Alice Gray with Serena Ard, museum curator for the Westchester Township History Museum, and Janet Zenke Edwards, author of Diana of the Dunes: The True Story of Alice Gray.
This presentation is free and sponsored by Westchester Public Library, the Friends of Indiana Dunes, Indiana Dunes Tourism and Indiana Dunes National Park.
