Jacob Remes will give a history lecture of Salem's past tonight from 7:30 to 9 at Salem Visitor Center, 2 New Liberty St., Salem.

Remes is the William Lyon Mackenzie King Research Fellow at Harvard University, where he is studying working-class and labor history with a focus on urban disasters, working-class organizations, and migration. The free talk is co-hosted by Salem Maritime National Historic Site and the Salem State University History Department. Doors open at 7 p.m.
