1:00 P.M. Museum Meeting Room
Writer and historian Gregory Hinton will present a lecture and power point with colorful posters and vintage photographs illuminating the remarkable legacy of William F. “Buffalo Bill” Cody (1846-1917) — frontiersman, scout and world-famous showman. Hinton's talk will underscore Cody's deep ties to the Golden State. From 1877- 1916, Cody’s bond with California was strong, including statewide tours in multiple cities stretching from Oakland to San Diego. Buffalo Bill & California is offered courtesy of the Buffalo Bill Center of the West (BBCW) in Cody, Wyoming, in celebration of the 2017 Buffalo Bill Centennial.
