Lecture Series: The VC Relic and The Professor of Something or Other
November 10 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$10
Join The Comstock Foundation and Piper’s Opera House as they continue with their monthly lecture series.
Returning to Piper’s Opera House is the duo affectionately called, The Ron and Joe Show. The local historians will discuss their recent research on the varied cultural groups that made up the eclectic population of the Comstock from the 1860s to today. This includes the Germans, the Irish, the Welsh and the Jewish population, as well as many others that sustained the economy, entertainment, and mining industries of Virginia City.
Speakers are two local historians. Joe Curtis moved to Virginia City in 1958. His family bought a building and opened a museum dedicated to the history of life on the Comstock. He grew up amidst the museum and became infatuated with the history of the town and area and began collecting old photos to document the rich history.
Ron Gallagher is a well-known local aged artifact of the Comstock. Raised here, his relatives date well into the lower 1800s. His ability to demonstrate knowledge of the Comstock is based on recollections, stories and other associated Comstock BS.
