Researching Our Past through Newspapers of the 1800s

Nov 19

This month’s theme is Researching Our Past through Newspapers of the 1800’s and the speaker, Jim Harmon, will help us explore the process of finding fascinating stories from the past through microfilm-newspaper-files. The quill-drivers of early day Montana documented it all; the swell-set entertaining lavishly, enjoying Herr Daniel Bandmann’s Shakespearean productions at the opera house, while the saloons and houses of Missoula’s “Midway Plaisance” gave the city a reputation as one of the worst places in the state for drug-related crime and murder.
