Drought isn't a recent phenomenon, hear how it has shaped Texas history

Program Details

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.
