THE MAN WHO WAS TORN BY THE BEAR AND THE BODY FOUND THIS DAY IN THE LAGUNA: BRIEF LIVES OF THE NORTH BAY

Sonoma County Museum, November 7, 7:00 PM 

Presented by Daniel Markwyn, PhD., Emeritus Professor of History, Sonoma State University

Dr. Markwyn will examine the violent and untimely deaths of two men, one who died in 1833 and the other in 1878, while working in the region north of San Pablo Bay that we know as Sonoma County. Both men died as a result of their participation in the continuing scramble to control and exploit the land and the resources of northwestern North America. Piecing together the scanty particulars of these two men’s lives, Dr. Markwyn will show how two obscure and under-documented events, widely separated in time, can reveal patterns and connections, connect us to an earlier time and deepen our understanding of Sonoma County’s history.

Sonoma County Museum 425 Seventh Street, Santa Rosa
