November HL meeting

With business taken care of at the Nov League meeting, it is time for socializing and lunch. Renee Donnelly visits with Wade Weber, Cathy Shumard and Chris Hackett give their reports, Pres. Claire Nullmeyer thanks speaker Wade Weber with Tastes & Treasures II. He gave a fascinating presentation on photographer Edward S. Curtis. Native American history was captured by photographer Edward S. Curtis in 20 leather bound volumes from 1906-1926. With a forward from President Ted Roosevelt and funded by JP Morgan, this subscription was valued at $3,800. Today's worth is $80,000. Fascinating stories and brilliant photography! These are displayed at a new exhibit at Museum of the West. Wade Weber told us about this amazing historical document at our Monday Historical League meeting.
