The Adams Family: America’s First Dynasty
Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI)
Berger Center, Oakmont
Monday, April 9th – Monday, May 14th, 2018

The Adamses are America’s longest and most influential dynasty, exercising powerful sway over public affairs for almost two centuries. They were the closest thing to royalty our country has known—at least until the Kennedys. Brilliant, learned, and witty, yet often abrasive, arrogant, and grandiose, the Adamses never failed to arouse controversy during their long stay on the stage of history. In this course, we will delve into the lives and careers of this extraordinary clan.

Mick Chantler, MA, concluded his 36 year career in teaching at Sonoma Valley High School and currently teaches courses in the OLLI programs at Dominican University of California, Sonoma State University and UC Berkeley. As a lifelong student of the Civil War era, he is a member of the Lincoln Forum and was pleased to organize the Lincoln Bicentennial Celebration for the City of Sonoma in 2009. In 2010 he coordinated the American History Series at the Sonoma Valley Library. Mick’s other interests include the history of baseball and he is a long-standing member of the Society for American Baseball Research.
