Coordinator of Academic Services in the Department of Geography, Geology and the Environment Paul Meister will be presenting the “150 Years in the Making: Powell Artifacts Return Home” talk.
This free event will take place in the Founders Suite of the Bone Student Center from 3:30-5:30 p.m. Nov. 15.
Meister will be talking about the experiences of famed explorer John Wesley Powell, a Civil War veteran and the first person to successfully cross through the Grand Canyon.
Powell has strong links to Illinois State University and the Department of Geography, Geology and the Environment.
Meister will also highlight the interesting story of how several of the many artifacts of Powell’s collection were recently released to the Natural History Museum of Utah.
All faculty, staff, annuitants, graduate students and other members of the Illinois State community are welcome to join the University Club at this event.
Members of the community do not have to be a part of the University Club to attend this event.
Snacks and liquid refreshments are available at each University Club event.
