Windows In Time Lecture Series Presents:
“THE BOUNTY OF THE LAND: SOUTHERN OREGON AGRICULTURE, 1850-1920”
Historian Larry Mullaly presents November 6 & 13, 2019
Medford, Oregon (October 10, 2019) —Larry Mullaly will present “The Bounty of The Land: Southern Oregon Agriculture, 1850-1920”
on Wednesday, November 6 at the Medford Library, 205 South Central Avenue, and Wednesday, November 13 at the Ashland Library, 410 Siskiyou Boulevard from 12 noon–1:00 p.m. at both locations.
The illustrated talk explores the geographic and economic conditions that enabled Southern Oregon farming to thrive as early as the 1850s and eventually enter the international market. It contrasts the culture of the Valley’s older ranching and mixed-use farms with the orchard industry.
Larry Mullaly has a Masters in History from the University of San Francisco and is a retired educator. He is active with the Southern Oregon Historical Society’s Hanley Farm near Jacksonville, a pioneer homestead dedicated to preserving the region’s agricultural heritage.
The monthly “Windows in Time” lunchtime lectures are offered free to the public on the first and second Wednesday throughout the year from 12 noon–1:00 p.m. The Southern Oregon Historical Society and Jackson County Library Services co-sponsor the lecture series.
