Brown Bag Lunch with C. O. Smithers

Wednesday, November 14, 2018

The Butte-Silver Bow Archives is hosting two presentations this week on a selection of photographs from the C. Owen Smithers Photograph Collection. “Butte, Smithers, and the Brawl of the Wild” will run at the noon Brown Bag Lunch and again at 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, November 14, in the large auditorium at 17 W. Quartz St. This is the third of several themed presentations from the Smithers Collection. Bob Chamberlin and Dan Peters will showcase images from the Smithers Collection that illustrate Butte’s role as the host of the cross-state rivalry between the Montana State Bobcats and the University of Montana Grizzlies. These two volunteers comprise one team of many that have worked with Archives’ staff to identify, process, and rehouse the Smithers Collection for two years. Funding for the C. O. Smithers Collection was provided by the National Historic Publications and Records Commission, the Dennis and Phyllis Washington Foundation, and Montana Resources.
