The regular monthly meeting of Charleston-Calhoun-Hiwassee Historical Society will be held Sunday at 3 p.m. at Hiwassee River Heritage Center.

Margot Still will present "The History Branch: Past, Present and Future."

Still is the manager of Cleveland Public Library: History Branch.

Always a historian, she graduated from the University of Tennessee with a degree in history. As an undergraduate, she worked under Dr. Charles Johnson in the establishment of the Center for the Study of War and Society.

After graduation, sheworked in medical administration in Memphis, but stayed close to her love of history working with the Wonders International Cultural Series exhibitions including Napoleon, Ottoman Empire, Catherine the Great, Imperial Tombs of China and Titanic.

Homesick for East Tennessee, Still returned to Cleveland and obtained a master’s degree from UTC. She taught for several years in Charleston, S.C., before returning to Cleveland.

After working in the Reference Department of the Cleveland Public Library, she was selected to be the new manager of the History Branch. She is a member of First Families of Tennessee, is considering DAR and is working toward certification as a genealogist.

In October of 2016, she was recognized by the OSS Society for her work on the papers of Howard Chappell, an OSS operative in Italy behind German lines during World War II.

The public is invited to join us as Still shares her love of local history with us.

The Heritage Center is located at 8746 Hiwassee St. in Charleston.
