Local historian Jimmy Ogle will discuss the areas surrounding the University of Memphis during his presentation of “Know Your Neighborhood” at 1 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 22, in the University of Memphis Ned R. McWherter Library, second floor west side study area. Admission is free and open to the public.

Ogle’s talk will focus on the neighborhoods around the University. He will discuss sections of the city of Memphis, the history of the U of M, the six neighborhood districts, some lost aspects of the past, and prospects for the future.

Ogle’s professional background has provided him with plenty of opportunities to absorb Memphis history. He has served as director of operations for the Memphis Rock ‘n’ Soul Museum and vice president of operations at Performa Entertainment Real Estate, the managing company for the Beale Street Historic District. Ogle has been general manager for the Memphis Queen Line and Mud Island. He also conducts lunchtime walking tours of Downtown.
