The Cloister Ballroom
Enjoy an informative, historical presentation by Philip Anschutz, author of Volumes I and II of Out Where the West Begins. Mr. Anschutz chronicles stories of the courageous entrepreneurs who, between 1800 and 1920, put America’s West on the map. Volume I focuses on individuals such as Cyrus McCormick, Brigham Young, James Fargo, Levi Strauss and others, all people of imagination and courage who were adept at maneuvering the rapids of change, and, as a result, helped lay the groundwork for what we know as the American West. Volume II’s focus is on the exploration and settlement of lands stretching to the Pacific Ocean as the nation expanded from coast to coast, where only a patchwork of eastern seaboard colonies had existed following the young country’s struggle for independence.
