The Book of the Dead:

Clatsop County Coroners' Inquests 1905 - 1909

Mac Burns, Executive Director of the Clatsop County Historical Society, will lead the audience through a graphic description of the multitude of ways to die in Clatsop County in the early 1900s.  With modern medical science, OSHA safety protocols, and advancements in technology, we have become somewhat sanitized to the all-too-typical accidental and unique causes of death that people a century ago were accustomed to.  The book of coroner inquests were investigations into the cause of death and are not for the squeamish.

Warning: Mature Audiences Only

The Clatsop County Historical Society's TNT lecture series is a free event at Fort George Brewery on the third Thursday of each month. Doors open at 6:00 pm, with lectures beginning at 7:00 pm. Seasonal beers on tap, food and other beverages are available for purchase.
