Montgomery History Speakers Bureau Newest Addition: Reed Brothers Dodge History

I am very excited to announce that I have officially been added to the Montgomery History Speakers Bureau. My topic is, of course, The History of Reed Brothers Dodge“. The PowerPoint presentation is approximately 40 minutes in length and highlights the dealerships historic timeline, which showcases how Reed Brothers Dodge came into being, and how the company overcame the inevitable changes and challenges throughout almost a century of being in business. More than 100 photographs are featured, 70 of them rare, historic images taken by the dealership’s founder, Lewis Reed.

About the Speaker’s Bureau:

This service is for business and professional groups, neighborhood associations, senior centers and residences, clubs, schools, religious institutions, civic groups, historical societies and museums, and other organized groups throughout Montgomery County and the greater Washington D.C. metro area.

Presentations are offered in the forms of lectures, slide shows (traditional and PowerPoint), music, portrayals and re-enactments in local history, and in the national history that is part of our local story.

The speakers and re-enactors are community historians and professionals trained in local history and public speaking; many have written books and articles on their chosen subjects.  As part of the presentation, book signings and sales can be arranged, as can follow-up tours and visits to the sites discussed.  Presentations can range from 30 to 60 minutes in length, and generally can be adapted to an organization’s specific needs.

Business longevity is something to celebrate and share. It is my great honor to join the talented league of speakers at Montgomery History, and I sincerely look forward to sharing our 97-year family business history.

About Reed Brothers

I am a co-owner of the former Reed Brothers Dodge in Rockville, Maryland. Lewis Reed, the founder of Reed Brothers Dodge was my grandfather. We were a family-owned and operated car dealership in Rockville for almost a century. I served in the United States Air Force for 30 years before retiring in the top enlisted grade of Chief Master Sergeant in July 2006. In 2016, I received the Arthur M. Wagman Award for Historic Preservation Communication from Peerless Rockville for documenting the history of Reed Brothers Dodge in both blog and book format. This distinguished honor recognizes outstanding achievement by writers, educators, and historians whose work has heightened public awareness of Rockville’s architectural and cultural heritage, growth and development.
