Presented by: Bill RobbinsAbout the Presentation:Join Professor Bill Robbins for a presentation on the creation of
Malheur Wildlife Refuge and the continuing struggle over management of public
lands in the West. A continuation of earlier protests, the roots of the Malheur
Occupation of 2016 can be found in the history of Harney County, from the
arrival of cattle in the late 19th century through the Great Depression, the
creation of the refuge and the passage of the Taylor Grazing Act of 1934.
About the Speaker:Bill Robbins is Emeritus Distinguished Professor of History at
Oregon State University and author and editor of several books, including Colony
and Empire: The Capitalist Transformation of the American West (1994); Landscapes
of Promise: The Oregon Story, 1800–1940 (1997); Landscapes of Conflict:
The Oregon Story 1940–2000 (2004); and The People's School: A History of
Oregon State University (2017).
These monthly, free events are open to everyone interested in Oregon and Pacific Northwest history. Co-sponsored by like-minded historical and civic organizations, we bring you experts, scholars, first-person experiencers and historians who expound on topics from Lewis and Clark to shipwrecks, hop growing to women pioneers and far, far beyond. It's like being back in the classroom - except this time you get to settle into comfortable seats and enjoy a drink or two with dinner while you listen and learn.
This event is eligible for a History Pub Stamp
