The Adams State University Nielsen Library continues its mission to provide stimulating presentations for campus and community. Stuart Bryan, local author of Fremont’s Fatal Fourth Expedition (1848-1849), will discuss the purpose and disastrous outcome of famed western explorer John C. Fremont’s winter trek through Southern Colorado as well as his own efforts to retrace Fremont’s path.
The event begins at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 19, in the library second floor lounge. The event is free and refreshments will be provided.
Bryan, a retired science teacher from Monte Vista High School and a longtime resident of the San Luis Valley, received Bachelor and Master of Science degrees from the University of New Mexico. Fremont’s Fatal Fourth Expedition is the end result of over twenty years of research and writing.
