Presentation: John Ross Browne: Writer and Artist in the Frontier Southwest by Gil Storms
January 27, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm$10
John Ross Browne was funny, adventurous, and was the most popular travel writer in the United States in the mid-1800’s, especially well-known for his accounts of life in the frontier Southwest. He was an artist as well as a writer, and visited and sketched Tubac in 1864. Some of the sketches can be seen on banners hanging at the Presidio. Gil Storms taught American literature and writing for twenty-nine years at Miami University (Ohio). He currently lives in Tucson. He will talk about Browne’s stories and sketches of the beauty and brutality of frontier life as well as his comical view of frontier existence and his own, unlikely position as a writer and artist on the frontier. $10 fee includes admission to tour the Presidio Park.
