The Meaning of the Word "Hoosier"

Where does the word "Hoosier" originate? Learn some of the possible answers in a presentation by Hanover University professor Jonathan Clark Smith at noon Wednesday (7 May) in the Cole Porter Room of the Indiana History Center in Indianapolis.

Dr. Smith does not profess to know the origin of the word, but his research into when it became popular and its original use helps get us all a little closer to solving the most perplexing mystery in Indiana's history.

It's part of the IHS Speakers Series, and admission is free.
