Oct 26 JOHN W. STORMONT LECTURE Texas Cemeteries

5:30 p.m.
Visiting cemeteries from every era and all regions of the state, author Bill Harvey recounts the histories of famous, infamous, and just plain interesting Texans who lie at rest in Texas cemeteries. Harvey traces his interest in Texas cemeteries to high school summers working in Fort Worth’s Mount Olivet Cemetery. An avid student of Texas history, as well as an outdoorsman, fly fisherman, and photographer, Harvey has worked for the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department in Austin for nearly twenty years. Free and open to the public.
