HELENA – The Montana Historical Society is spending the next two months exploring the last 12,000 years of Montana history with its second ‘9 Easy Lessons’ lecture series.
The series takes place every Wednesday afternoon from April 3rd to May 29th.
The lectures will cover a variety of topics from far before Montana became a state – to more recent history, such as the pre-contact trade network, cattle raising on the plains, Montana in the Great Depression and what one well-known Montana historian calls the ‘triple revolution’ of the 1960’s and 70’s.
“Harry Fritz, he’s professor emeritus at the University of Montana. One of everyone’s favorite Montana historians is going to be coming and talking about Montana’s triple revolution he calls it from 1960-1975,” says MHS historian Martha Kohl. “Mary Murphy from MSU is a professor of history there is going to be coming and talking about the Great Depression and we have Tim Hardy who was the former editor of a fur trade journal.”
The first lecture is April 3rd at the Montana Historical Society at 3:30 p.m.
They are free and open to the public.
OPI renewal credits are available and the lectures are live streamed for those who cannot attend in person.
You can also live stream all of last year’s ‘9 Easy Lessons’ lectures on the historical society website.
