A talk by
Dunbar Town House – Saturday 13 May
beginning at 7.00pm but come along from 6.30pm
Mike is Head of Special Collections at the University of the Pacific, Stockton, CA., and one of his principal roles is as curator of the John Muir Papers and over a dozen Muir related collections.
Muir the artist is not a title that many would give him but, using artistic images from Muir’s journals, manuscripts, letters & drawings, Mike will examine how Muir used his masterful observational skills to study, promote, and protect our natural places. He will also use others to share some of Muir’s gripping near-death adventures – such as the time he experienced a Yosemite Valley earthquake.
 Enjoy a glass of wine or a soft drink and a chance to meet Mike and fellow Californian Jamie Hinrichs, an environmental historian and PhD student at St Andrews University.
