“Montana 1864-1889”, a program and book signing by Ken Egan on Friday, June 30th at Noon. Join scholar and writer Ken Egan for a tour of Montana from 1864 to 1889. See how key historical fgures such as Granville Stuart, James Fergus, Helen Clarke, Wilbur Sanders, Young Man Afraid of His Horses, and more change over time—and how Montana changes with them as it transforms from territory to state. Ken will have copies of his books Montana 1864 and Montana 1889 available for sale—all royalties support the programs and grants of Humanities Montana.

Ken Egan has served as the executive director of Humanities Montana since 2009. He earned his B.A. in English at the University of Montana, his M.A. and Ph.D. in American Literature at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He taught English at Middlebury College, Rocky Mountain College, and Drury University. He served as department and divisional chair at Rocky and Drury and sat on the board of Humanities Montana (then Montana Committee for the Humanities) from 1989 to 1992.
