Victoria College's Museum of the Coastal Bend announces the Fall 2022 John W. Stormont Lecture Series. Lectures will take place at the museum, are free admission, and open to the public.
Lecture 3 of 3:
Cattle Drives: Texas and the International Economy of Beef Lecture will be held on Thursday, Nov. 3 at 5:30 p.m.
Presenter Bruce Shackelford is the Texas History Curator at the Witte Museum, and an independent consultant, researcher, and writer working on projects dealing with the history of the trans-Mississippi American West and North American Indian art and culture. He is also well-known as an appraiser for 13 seasons on the Antiques Roadshow show on National Public Television, and lends his expertise to the ranching artifact roundup immediately preceding this lecture. Bruce speaks about the cattle industry from a "big picture" point of view--from the first recorded cattle drives under Spain to the cattle boom in post 1868.
