THIS THURSDAY Fundraising Lecture for SLV Museum

Hear the untold local story of who and how Big Basin was saved.

2014-05-08 SLV Museum Lecture

What:         Fundraising Lecture for San Lorenzo Valley Museum

When:        Thursday, May 8th, 7pm – 9pm, Doors open at 6pm

Where:       Historic Park Hall, 9400 Mill Street, Ben Lomond

Price:         $25 per person ($20 for SLV Museum members, students with ID, seniors 65+)

SLV Museum is having a fundraising lecture this Thursday from 7pm – 9pm at the Historic Park Hall in Ben Lomond.  Doors open at 6pm, so come on by and help support our local museum, and learn something about our local pride at the same time.

You will hear about a female writer who In the winter of 1900 sent a bold letter to the Santa Cruz Sentinel urging citizens to preserve the old growth redwoods in Big Basin. Just fifteen months later, the first California Redwood State became a reality. Dr. Traci Bliss will combine social, political, and family history to provide a fresh perspective on the Park’s creation, with emphasis on the unsung role of women. The Bliss family settled in Santa Cruz in the 1870’s. Jennie Bliss, the sister of Traci’s great grandfather, married William T. Jeter, lawyer, bank president and the first Democrat to be elected mayor of Santa Cruz. Through Jennie’s persistent urging, Jeter embraced the campaign to save the Big Basin Redwoods. Together with Andrew P. Hill, he forged a preservationist coalition of women’s groups, businessmen and academics.

Speaker Traci Bliss, an Emerita Professor and award winning educator holds a BA, MA, and PhD from Stanford and an MPA from the University of Texas at Austin. She serves as the President of the History Forum at the Santa Cruz Museum of Art and History (MAH). With San Lorenzo Valley historian, Randall Brown, she is the author of three chapters in the forthcoming MAH History Journal: Redwood Logging and Conservation in the Santa Cruz Mountains—A Split History. Bliss has been a docent at Henry Cowell Redwood State Park since 2009.
