Brown Bag Lunch: J. T. Pardee, A Biography in Progress

Wednesday, October 9, 2019

The Butte-Silver Bow Public Archives will continue its Brown Bag Lunch series on Wednesday, October 9, with a presentation by Anne Millbrooke called “Joseph T. Pardee, a Biography in Progress.” Born in 1871, Joe Pardee moved in 1874 with his parents to Philipsburg, Montana. He became a government geologist employed by the U.S. Geological Survey. He spent field seasons in Montana, Idaho, Washington, Oregon, and elsewhere. His work on glacial Lake Missoula changed the way geologists around the world think about regional flooding. Anne Millbrooke was born in western Oregon and raised on the coast of Washington state. She went east to college, first to Boise State College in Idaho for a bachelor’s degree, then to the University of Wisconsin at Madison for a master’s degree, and finally to the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia for her doctorate. She studied history. She directed the Archive and Historical Resource Center at United Technologies Corporation.
