Bill Robbins to speak at the Anderson School as part of Pub Night Talk series

Pub Night Talk event “The Malheur Occupation and Public Lands in the American West,” co-sponsored by the University of Washington Bothell and McMenamins, will be held at the Anderson School’s Hayne’s Hall on Tuesday, Jan. 30 at 7 p.m.

Bill Robbins, an emeritus professor of history at Oregon State University and the author and editor of several books, will be discussing the 2016 occupation of the Malheur Wildlife Refuge. The discussion will revolve around how the occupation is a continuation of the struggle over management of public lands in the West since the arrival of cattle in the 19th century.

A Q&A will follow. All ages are welcome.
