High Noon Talk: Prelude to the Dust Bowl
January 3, 2018 12:00pm - 1:00pm
Drought isn't a recent phenomenon, hear how it has shaped Texas history
Held on the first Wednesday of every month, High Noon Talks highlight interesting and often untold topics through this casual lunch-time lecture.
Prelude to the Dust Bowl provides new insights into pivotal moments in the settlement of the southern plains and stands as a timely reminder that drought will continue to figure into the unfolding history of this region. Join author and Professor of Geography and History at Wayland Baptist University, Kevin Sweeney, for a talk on the dramatic and little-known role drought played in settlement, migration, and war on the plains.
