Tom Conner: Joplin's Millionaire Zinc King

June 17, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

The Seneca County Museum will host Dr. Chad Stebbins, journalism professor and director of the Institute of International Studies at Missouri Southern State University. Dr. Stebbins will present a program on his recently released  book about Tom Connor.

Tom's family immigrated from Ireland as a result of the potato famine and settled in Tiffin, Ohio.  Dr. Stebbins will share Tom's adventurous life and how he became a millionaire after moving to southwest Missouri.  However, Tom would never forget his hometown of Tiffin, and his generosity continues through the Thomas Connor Commission "for the support of the poor.”
