Brown Bag Lunch with Ellen Crain

Wednesday, March 13, 2019

The Butte-Silver Bow Public Archives will continue its Brown Bag Lunch series on Wednesday, March 13, with a presentation by Ellen Crain about how the historical collections in the Butte Archives inform on Butte’s past. The Archives receives some wonderful collections and they provide the researcher valuable information on the history of Butte-Silver Bow. The Lowry-Thorn Collection gives us a wonderful and colorful view of the mid 1880’s in Butte City. Crain will discuss the Lowry Thorn Collection and share the details uncovered in this collection. Ellen has served as the Director of the Butte-Silver Bow Public Archives since 1990. Under her leadership, the Archives successfully executed a $7.5 million capital project to build an archival vault and restore the Historic Fire Department that the Archives called home. Ellen is a graduate of Montana Tech and a Butte native.
