Teenage newlywed Phebe Jane Knapp wrote a letter to her brother in 1851 describing her dental pain as well as other health issues, while she and her husband Marquis settled in the new state of Iowa.

All are welcome to a discussion with historians, curators, dentists, and archivists to explore how this powerful letter relates to current issues within dental care. Join in the conversation by sharing your own history and personal reflections with other U-M and local community members over a complimentary lunch. Free, registration is required.
