When: Saturday, October 28 at 10 AM
Ronald Reagan is known all over the world. But few know about his big brother, Neil, who was nicknamed “Moon.” Even fewer realize all the ways that the two brothers helped each other in their successful careers.
On Saturday, October 28, at 10:00 a.m., Dixon speaker Tom Wadsworth will come to the Oregon Depot Museum to present, “How Dutch Helped Moon: The Story of the Reagan Brothers of Dixon.” The one-hour presentation will reveal how Ronald Reagan influenced his big brother’s college education and career in radio, movies, media, and advertising, and how Neil influenced the success of Ronald Reagan’s political career.
Tom Wadsworth, who holds two master’s degrees and a PhD, has received national acclaim as a writer and speaker. The event is free and open to the public.
