TNT - Thursday Night Talks lecture series

Fort George Brewery's Lovell showroom, Astoria,OR
Event Fee: FREE - Donations are appreciated

The Clatsop County Historical Society's Thursday Night Talks (TNT) lecture series for April 18th will be: The Measure of Fortune? presented by author and professor Dr. Mark Eifler.

How did gold rush miners determine if they were successful? How much gold did
they need to be a success? And how many got what they wanted?

By examining four incredible stories, one of great success, one of great failure,
and two lost in between, can we figure out how gold rush Californians viewed "success?"

And what if the surprising answer was that it had nothing to do with gold at all?
What was the measure of fortune, both then and now?

Dr. Eifler is an Associate Professor of History at the University of Portland.
