    Barbara Stein on Annie Montague Alexander and the Rise of Science in the American West

    Thursday October 25, 2018 / 6 – 7 pm

    Sponsored by our partner, the Desert Research Institute

    Annie Montague Alexander (1867–1950) was an intrepid explorer, amateur naturalist, skilled markswoman, philanthropist, farmer, and founder of two natural history museums at UC Berkeley. Working with scientists, Alexander joined research expeditions in Alaska, the Pacific Northwest, Northern California, the Eastern Sierra, and Nevada–where she took part in the 1905 Saurian Expedition and ichthyosaur excavation in the West Humboldt Range.

    Barbara R. Stein offers a portrait of this remarkable woman, a pioneer who helped shape the world of science, yet whose name has been little known until now.
