A Not-So-New-Open Space 65 Million Years in the making!....Corral Bluffs by Jackie Hilaire
Colorado Springs Masonic Center, Monday, May 8 at 6pm
Please join the Pikes Peak Posse of the Westerners for our Monthly Historical Presentation…

East of the city boundaries is a new property owned by the Colorado Springs Parks Department. Rich in history, geologically unique and generally pristine – it was named in the 1800's as Corral Bluffs, a namesake derived from the cattle drive days. This 600 acre parcel is being researched at this time in preparation for a future Master Planning process. Jackie Hilaire, the president of the friends group, Corral Bluffs Alliance (CoBA) is going to present a quick overview / introduction of the area along with some fascinating history. Find out the reasons for this area becoming designated a Colorado Natural Area, a major research area for multiple disciplines, and hopefully, some place new for you to visit.

Jackie is a retired systems engineer and long time Colorado resident. She completed work with the Horticultural Arts Society, city parks board, TOPS, city Art Commission, LART, and continues on the GoG Foundation and CoBA boards. CoBA holds a hike permit for the CBOS leading guided hikes in the area.

Presentation format is in a casual, buffet style dinner setting at a cost of $17, payable in advance. RSVP and PAY via Credit Card online by Friday prior, 12 Noon.

Please contact Bob DeWitt at (719) 473-0330 or by email at posse@dewittenterprises.com

Guests are welcome! Membership in the Pikes Peak Posse of the Westerners is open to all with an interest in Western history. (PikesPeakShadow)

"Hank Greenberg in 1938" with Ron Kaplan
Bergino Baseball Clubhouse, Wednesday, May 3 at 7pm
Hank Greenberg was coming off a stellar season where he hit 40 home runs and had 184 RBIs. Even with his success at the plate, neither Greenberg nor the rest of the world could have expected what was about to happen in 1938.

From his first day in the big leagues, the New York-born Greenberg had dealt with persecution for being Jewish. From a teammate asking where his horns were to the verbal abuse from bigoted fans and the media, the 6’3” slugger always did his best to shut the noise out and concentrate on baseball. But in 1938, that would be more difficult than he could have ever imagined.

While Greenberg was battling at the plate, his people overseas were dealing with a battle for their lives. Adolf Hitler, who had been chancellor of Germany since 1933, had taken direct control of the country’s military in February 1938. He then began his methodic takeover of all neighboring countries, spreading Nazism and the early stages of World War II and the Holocaust.

“Hank Greenberg in 1938” chronicles the events of that year, both on the baseball diamond and the streets of Europe. As Greenberg’s bat had him on course for Babe Ruth’s home run record, Hitler’s “Final Solution” was beginning to take shape. Jews across the US looked to Greenberg as a symbol of hope. Though normally hesitant to speak about the anti-Semitism he dealt with, the slugger still knew the role he was playing, saying “I came to feel that if I, as a Jew, hit a home run, I was hitting one against Hitler.”

Join Ron Kaplan for our intimate Clubhouse conversation on Wednesday, May 3.

RSVP required to attend.

Ron Kaplan is an award-winning journalist and blogger. He writes about baseball literature and pop culture at “Ron Kaplan’s Baseball Bookshelf,” and is the author of three books including “501 Baseball Books Fans Must Read Before They Die.” His work has appeared in such outlets as “Baseball America,” “Irish America,” and “American Book Review,” among other national and international publications.

Where the Roads All End: The Marshall Family’s Kalahari Photography
Geological Lecture Hall, Wednesday, May 10 at 6pm
The Marshall family, which filmed and studied the Ju/’hoansi of the Kalahari Desert, created one of the most significant visual anthropology projects of the twentieth century. Sponsored by the Peabody Museum, the Marshalls made eight trips to Namibia (then South West Africa) in the 1950s to document some of the world’s last surviving self-sufficient hunter-gatherers, the Ju/’hoansi and G/wi people (earlier known pejoratively as “Bushmen” and later as the !Kung and the San). Using the Marshall family’s collection of stereo views taken with a Stereo Realist camera, Ilisa Barbash will discuss the Marshalls’ archive of over 40,000 photographs, the subject of the new book, Where the Roads All End: Anthropology and Photography in the Kalahari (Peabody Museum Press). The lecture will be followed by a reception and book signing. Books will be available for purchase at the event, at the front desk of the Peabody Museum, and from Harvard University Press.
