Join us for an immersive discussion surrounding our newest exhibition with its curator, Peter Boag, Professor and Columbia Chair in History of the American West at Washington State University and author of Re-Dressing America’s Frontier Past. As Americans moved across the country to create new lives, some also used the opportunity to establish their authentic selves. Boag discusses his quest to find the history of those who changed their assigned genders when moving West and how they were written out of American history. WSHS Lead Curator Gwen Whiting gives a preview of materials used in the exhibition to illustrate these underrepresented stories. Join us at
