"Glacier Album" Author to Present Free Lecture on Early Photos of Glacier National Park

Picturing the Park: Early Photos of Glacier National Park” will be the subject of a free community lecture on March 10 at Flathead Valley Community College.

Sponsored by the FVCC Continuing Education Center, the lecture will be presented by Michael Ober, FVCC College Library Director, Montana historian, long-time seasonal ranger at Glacier National Park and author of the photo-documentary “Glacier Album:  Historic Photographs of Glacier National Park.”

Ober will take his lecture guests on a black-and-white journey, both nostalgic and documentary, that will highlight the people, places and events of pre-1950 Glacier National Park.  The focus will be on the varied categories of early park photography and will include structures, roads, natural attractions and people.

Open to the public, the lecture will take place from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the large community meeting room inside the college’s Arts and Technology Building.
