Gender, Landscape, and the West: Theresa Salazar on Curating Conservationists
12 p.m.–1 p.m.
Theresa Salazar and ICW Associate Director Elizabeth Logan discuss Theresa's work cataloging the collections of conservationists Mardy & Olaus Murie and Adolph Murie & Louise Murie MacLeod for Teton Science Schools.
With support from the Natural Resources Defense Council, Theresa lived and worked at the Murie Ranch in Grand Teton National Park in the summer of 2021. The discussion will range from her observations of the Ranch to her thoughts on the contributions and legacies of Mardy and Louise, including the Wilderness Act.
Theresa Salazar has been the Curator of The Bancroft Collection, Western Americana since July of 1999. In 2004, she took on the responsibility for the Latin Americana collections of The Bancroft Library and oversaw that collection for twelve years. She is responsible for acquisitions related to Western Americana, from the colonial period to the present. She regularly teaches students about conducting research in The Bancroft Library.
