The Strange Career of William Ellis (Lone Tree) <p>The Strange Career of William Ellis: The Texas Slave Who Became A Mexican Millionaire</p> <p>Presenter: Dr. Karl Jacoby</p> <p>Dr. Jacoby joins us to discuss his book, The Strange Career of William Ellis. To his contemporaries in Gilded Age Manhattan, Guillermo Eliseo was a fantastically wealthy Mexican in the upper echelons of society. But for all his obvious riches and his elegant appearance, Eliseo was also the possessor of a devastating secret: he was not, in fact, from Mexico at all. Rather, he had begun life as a slave named William Ellis, born on a cotton plantation in southern Texas. Using Ellis’ story, Jacoby will explore fresh insights on the history of the Reconstruction era, the US-Mexico border, and the abiding riddle of race.</p> <p>*Registration required </p> 8827 Lone Tree Parkway Lone Tree , CO America/North_Dakota/Center

Leaving the Comfort Zone (Littleton) <p>Leaving the Comfort Zone: Mountain Men and the Trappings of a Wilderness Lifestyle</p> <p>Presenter: Ms. Sarah Pickman, Yale Doctoral Student</p> <p>The original mountain men of the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries endured physical hardships and isolation while working as trappers or pathbreakers across the American West. Yet by the late nineteenth century, a host of new goods and activities allowed urban Americans to enjoy a taste of the mountain man lifestyle within new middle-class norms around “comfort”: from guidebooks and gear for weekend campers and amateur trappers, to adventure novels for armchair travelers. Ms. Pickman will use mountain men and the recreational travelers who came after them as starting points to explore changing ideas of what it means to truly “live comfortably.”</p> 2004 W.
