The Little Red Schoolhouse

Camargo fx

In 1931, Julius and Dorette Fleischmann began an around the world adventure in their yacht, Camargo.  Follow their adventures as they navigate the Panama Canal, the south Pacific, Indo-China, Sri-Lanka, the Middle East, and Europe before they return home in 1932.  Their trip included fabulous sites and stories, all documented by diaries, letters, and photographs; many of the latter taken by Amos Burg, a National Geographic photographer.  Learn about the hundreds of items collected by the Fleischmanns, now housed at the Cincinnati Museum Center.  Hear about this amazing journey as told by archaeologist Bob Genheimer.  Enjoy delectable hors d’oeuvres and fine wine reminiscent of world travelers.
