Mr. Hugh Grinnell Presents with support from the AZ Humanities Council: “Mr. George Bird Grinnell and the Founding of Glacier National Park, National Audubon Society and the Boone & Crockett Club, ”  

The Chapter hosts special guest Mr. Hugh Grinnell, a distant cousin of George Bird Grinnell, the “Father of Glacier National Park”.  He impersonates his cousin and tells his story in a creative live presentation using projections of historical photos, maps, charts, and quotes to provide a living, first-person account of “Bird” Grinnell’s story.  The presentation uses George Bird Grinnell’s own field journals, published books, his letters, and letters to him from his contemporaries who figure prominently throughout the 50-minute Audio-Video show.
