About “Finding Frémont: Pathfinder of the West”


In the winter of 1843, Brevet Lt. John C. Frémont led an expedition of 27 men south of the Columbia River and into unmapped portions of Oregon and Nevada. In 2009, photographer Loren Irving set out to track the explorer, known as The Great Pathfinder, and photograph the expedition’s campsites. Join Loren Irving for a presentation of history, photography, and Irving’s own personal expedition to find Frémont in Oregon and Nevada.
