The next free event in the New Mexico Centennial Speaker & Living History Series at the KiMo talks about two famous Albuquerque figures: Clyde & Carrie Tingley.

Historian David Jackson and actress Van Ann Moore present Clyde & Carrie Tingley: Politics and Influence at the KiMo Theatre on Wednesday August 8, 2012, at 7 pm, and admission is free!

This is part of the New Mexico Centennial Living History Series with chautauqua reenactments of some of New Mexico’s most interesting characters. Clyde Tingley was Governor of New Mexico and Mayor of Albuquerque, and he and his wife Carrie played a major role in the city’s development during and after the Great Depression. We’ve probably all seen the statue of the couple at Tingley Beach – one of the most touching/cheer-making statues in Albuquerque, in my opinion.

The presentation is followed by a meet and greet with refreshments.  Doors open at the KiMo at 6:30 pm.

Clyde & Carrie Tingley: Politics and Influence takes place:

  • When:  Wednesday August 8, 2012
  • Time: 7 pm
  • Where:  KiMo Theatre
  • Price: Admission is free!

The KiMo Theatre is located at 423 Central Avenue NW.
