The New Living History of Fred Harvey, the Santa Fe and the Great Southwest: A Panel Discussion

This lively panel discussion and question-and-answer session on the past and future of research on Fred Harvey, the Harvey Girls, Mary Colter, Native art and the Santa Fe railroad starts at 11:30 a.m. (A book-signing precedes the panel at 11 a.m.)

Panelists include Stephen Fried, author of the recent best-selling historical biography Appetite for America: Fred Harvey and the Business of Civilizing the Wild West — One Meal at a Time; Diana Pardue, Heard Museum Curator of Collections (who curated the museum’s landmark Fred Harvey show in 1996 that reinvigorated research in all things Harvey); and Dr. Paul Hirt, Arizona State University associate professor of history, historian of the American West and an expert on the nature and history of the Grand Canyon.

Co-sponsored by the Heard Museum and Arizona State University.
