Update on the Fort Concho Collection

Join us for our first fall meeting for a return by Cory Robinson, Curator of History at the fort. Robinson will present a program on the site’s collection, including updates since his last visit and a look toward the future. Robinson received his BA in History from ASU in 2000, following it with a Masters in 2007. He is also passionate about vintage “base ball”, and educates and encourages others in that little-known piece of Fort Concho history. Along with his presentation, Robinson will exhibit some items from the collection. The public is invited to attend this free meeting on Tuesday, September 5, 7:00 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall of Trinity Lutheran Church, 3536 Lutheran Way. Refreshments will be provided.

Research at the WTC
