38th Annual Meeting of the Ocular Heritage Society

April 26-30, 2023

The 2023 annual meeting will be held in Sturbridge, MA. The society can look forward to exploring The Optical Heritage Museum run by our own, Dick Whitney. Founded in 1983, the Optical Heritage Museum is dedicated to the history of the optical industry from the 19th century to the present. OHS hasn’t visited the area since 2002 and there are new and familiar sites to explore, including a special trip to the Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History in New Haven, CT. Mark your calendars!
