QUINCY — A lecture and tribute to Quincy native and author Jim Peters will be held at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 5, at the Quincy Family and Senior Resource Center, 639 York. The program is sponsored by the Historical Society of Quincy and Adams County. It is free and open to the public.

Peters, who wrote “Arlington National Cemetery, Shrine to America’s Heroes,” was scheduled to present the November program himself but died this fall. Timothy Jacobs, program committee chair for the Historical Society of Quincy and Adams County, will present the program in honor of Peters and in recognition of a milestone in his life — the release of the fourth edition of his book.

Jacobs has presented a program on the book many times. In a press release, Jacobs said, “This is the definitive book on Arlington. It is an excellent choice for history buffs or for anyone interested in cemeteries. I was really looking forward to Jim’s program, so it is a real honor to present this lecture about his book.”

Copies of the book will be sold at the Senior Center during the program. They also will be available at Quincy’s History Shop in the History Museum on the Square, 332 Maine.

The society is using the Senior Resource Center as a temporary venue due to accessibility issues at its History Museum on the Square.
