November  15, 2014 History Alive! Presents “Dear Emma”

John Wesley Powell (1834-1902)

Surrounded by trunks and cargo, John Wesley Powell is seated at a small camp desk, writing a letter, to his wife, Emma, the night before embarking on his 1869 journey of exploration into the "Great Unknown.” Preparing to face the perils and the mysteries of the Grand Canyon, he contemplates aloud what may lay ahead, the colorful crew members accompanying him, and his thoughts of when he will see her again. Insightful and entertaining, this presentation puts the listener into the mind of a man who is both anticipating and fearing what he is facing. It helps one to imagine what it may feel like upon entering uncharted lands, and to appreciate the bravery and fortitude of those who have.

 

Scholar: Todd Weber Todd Weber became enthralled with history as a child, and by his teenage years was already building a collection of clothing and accouterments representing the explorers and fur traders of the west. Years of reading journals and the historical accounts of the fascinating characters of the past, Todd became self taught on the facts and details of various periods of America's history. Over the last 25 years, he has taught countless groups of all ages. His collections of tools, arms, accouterments and period clothing add to his presentations, making them very visual and memorable.
