Pioneer Museum Presents 3 Papers On Montana History Saturday April 21, 2012

Are you a Gallatin Valley and Montana history buff? The Pioneer Museum in downtown Bozeman has something special for you on April 21, 2012. DETAILS HERE:

Three papers will be presented during the annual meeting of the Gallatin Historical Society on Saturday, April 21, in the community Room of the Gallatin County Courthouse.

Society Director John Russell’s paper, “John Colter, Mountain Man,” will look not only at Colter’s harrowing escapes in the Gallatin Valley, but also his explorations in other parts of the Rocky Mountain West.

Eileen Tenney will discuss “The Remarkable Lewis Siblings” – Bozeman businessman Sam Lewis and his half-sister Edmonia, the first internationally acclaimed African-American sculptor.

The third paper, by MSU historian and librarian Kim Allen Scott, is “Blood Money: Bozeman’s 1932 Bank Robbery,” a look back at the robbery of the Security Bank and Trust Company on Main Street and the ensuing manhunt for the culprits.

The meeting, free and open to the public, begins at 1:00 p.m. and will include a review of activities by the society and Pioneer Museum over the past year. A reception will be held after the meeting in the Pioneer Museum, next door to the courthouse. Call 522-8122 for more information.
