Victoria College Continues Stormont Lecture Series
Victoria College’s Spring 2023 John W. Stormont Lecture Series will continue with Dr. Leslie Bush presenting “Deeply Rooted: Native Texas Plants from the Pleistocene to Present.”
Bush is a paleoethnobotanist, an archaeologist who specializes in identifying bits of plants preserved on archaeological sites, usually in the form of charcoal and occasionally as waterlogged wood or other plant parts. She will speak about her experiences working on archaeological sites in eighteen states, including the Fort St. Louis/Presidio La Bahia site in Victoria County.
The series will conclude on Thursday, March 23 at 5:30 p.m. with “Chasing Billy the Kid” presented by historian Kurt House. House is the director of the Wild West History Association, a Western collector and a noted author of several books on Western America.
The Stormont lectures are free and open to the public.
The Museum of the Coastal Bend is located on Victoria College’s Main Campus at 2200 E. Red River Street in Victoria. The museum is open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is “pay-what-you-want.”
