    Quanah and Cynthia Ann Parker will be the topic of an exhibit and program series at Booth Library.

    The exhibit “Quanah and Cynthia Ann Parker: The History and the Legend” will be on display from Feb. 7 to April 9. In addition, a series of related programs and film screenings are planned Feb. 20-23.

    The saga of Cynthia Ann and Quanah Parker is well-known in Texas history, but the story really began in East Central Illinois. Cynthia Ann’s grandfather, Elder John Parker, her uncles, Benjamin and Daniel Parker, and other members of the family were among the first white settlers of what became Coles County.

    In about 1833, several members of the Parker clan moved to Texas and created Fort Parker there. A few years later, a band of Indians attacked the fort, killing many and kidnapping a few of the children, including Cynthia Ann, age 9.

    Cynthia Ann grew up as a member of the Comanche tribe, married one of the chiefs and bore three children; the oldest was Quanah, who later became the last Comanche chief in America.

    Amelia Earhart's courageous exploits and spirited personality made her an international celebrity in the early twentieth century.  She was the first woman to cross the Atlantic (1932).  She set numerous speed and altitude records and received high honors and awards.  On July 2, 1937, she and her navigator Fred Noonan mysteriously disappeared over the Pacific Ocean during their attempted round-the-world flight.  Set in 1937, this first-person program recounts Earhart's life, the many records she broke, her unconventional views on marriage, and her tireless work to promote aviation and opportunities for women.
