Lynn Downey – “The Fascinating and Sometimes Hilarious History of the Dude Ranch.” Lynn is the former Historian for Levi Strauss & Co. and lectured at the museum back in 2017.
Lynn refers to her new book, American Dude Ranch: A Touch of the Cowboy and the Thrill of the West. Movies, food, women’s history, clothing: all of these have a history with the Dude Ranches of old. Lynn has many stories to tell in her illustrated talk. She writes a blog about the West at: https://tumblereadsblog.com/blog-sg/ and her website is at http://lynndowney.com/.
