July 5, 2017, 9:00 AM - August 15, 2017, 5:00 PM @ Archives Lobby
The Butte-Silver Bow Public Archives is proud to present its All Nations Exhibit, on display in the upper and lower lobbies of the building. The exhibit showcases the many nationalities that made up Butte’s population in 1917.
Butte’s rise as a significant industrial center in the late 19th and early 20th centuries coincided with tumultuous events in modern European history. Waves of European immigrants came to America’s industrial centers in search of better opportunities between 1870 and 1920. They came from Ireland, Italy and Croatia; Cornwall, Finland, and Serbia. Immigrants came from all over the world to participate in the development of the American west and they settled in Butte to work in the mines and supportive industries and businesses. The exhibit also features the contributions of Montana’s Native American tribes, and African American culture brought to Butte by former slaves or their children following the Civil War.

The Butte-Silver Bow Public Archives will continue its Brown Bag Lunch series on Wednesday, July 26, with a presentation by Steve Lozar. The Brown Bag talk will be about the very unique history of marketing the beer produced by breweries in Butte beginning in the 1860’s.
Steve “Bubs” Lozar was born in St. Ignatius, Montana. An enrolled member and former Tribal Councilman of Salish and Kootenai Tribes, Lozar is also the great-grandson of Slovenian brewing immigrants. A man of many talents, he is a Graduate Anthropologist, legal historic water rights researcher, and the owner of Montana’s oldest screen printing and embroidery business. Lozar is a lifelong collector of Montana brewery history and breweriana and a frequent public speaker on all aspects of Montana brewing history. He also plays hockey.
Guests are encouraged to bring a sack lunch. Coffee and water will be provided.
Brown Bag Lunches are held the second and fourth Wednesdays of every month.
