General Membership Meeting & Speaker Dr. Ed Dobbins

The March General Membership Business Meeting and Presentation will be held virtually on Monday, March 1st, 2021. Dr. Ed Dobbins, who joined the Historical League in the fall of 2020, will speak at 11:30 AM about C.J. Dyer. Dyer is best known for his 1885 bird’s-eye view of Phoenix, but Dyer created four others, including one that was never published. Dyer, a cartographer and artist, was also a Phoenix mayor. No photo of him was ever known until Ed discovered one last year during his research. Look for your Zoom invitation.

General Membership Meeting & Speaker Heidi Osselaer

The April General Membership business meeting and presentation will be held virtually on Monday, April 5, 2021. At 11:30 AM Heidi Osselaer will speak on her recent book Arizona’s Deadliest Gunfight. But it’s not the one we all think of! The deadliest shootout occurred in 1918 in a remote canyon northeast of Tucson, not at the OK Corral. Heidi looks at what was considered a quintessential Western feud and shows how it was linked to the national debate over entering WWI, rural poverty, and social discord.

Heidi is a sustaining member of the Historical League and is a well-known independent historian. Look for your Zoom invitation.
