Gallatin History Museum Monthly Speaker Series-Dr. Jeffrey Strickler-Whispers of the Past and Reflections on Nature: Names in Bozeman's Backyard, The Madison, Gallatin, and Bridger Ranges

Please join the Gallatin History Museum in the Hager Auditorium at MOR for a presentation by Dr. Jeffrey Stickler, Whispers of the Past and Reflections on Nature: Names in Bozeman’s
Backyard, The Madison, Gallatin and Bridger Ranges.

Dr. Jeff has been putting the finishing touches on a new book of the same title as this presentation. He has graciously offered the proceeds of this new book benefit the GHM as much of his research has been in our research library, and he is just that kind of nice guy!

Jeff is the author of “Big Sky Names: An Amble Through Western History and Ecology on the Roads, Streams, and Developments of Big Sky Montana”, “Big Sky” (Images of America Series) and “The Skier's Guide to the Biggest Skiing in America, featuring Big Sky Resort and Lone Mountain Ranch”.

Dr. Jeff Strickler started skiing at age five and the passion has continued. He raced in high school and college on the 250" hills of his home state of Minnesota, but learned big mountain skiing on family vacations in Aspen and Sun Valley. A year as an exchange student to Austria in 1960 was followed by a three month sojourn in 1969 just skiing the Alps. After a residency in pediatrics at Stanford University, and a bit of military duty in Alaska, he established a practice in Helena, MT in 1975 and has skied Big Sky ever since. Dr. Jeff and his wife, Karen, have owned several condos in the area, but bought their Meadow Village home in 1993. They moved to Big Sky full time upon his retirement in 2005. Tall, dressed in black, and seldom slow, he can be seen on the slopes or cross country trails most every day of the season.

This program is open and free to the public.
