THE MAN WHO WAS TORN BY THE BEAR and
THE BODY FOUND THIS DAY IN THE LAGUNA
Presented by Daniel Markwyn, PhD., Emeritus Professor of History, Sonoma State University
Two men, one in 1833 and one in 1878, died violently and unexpectedly while working in the region north of San Pablo Bay that we know as Sonoma County. Both died as a result of their participation in the continuing scramble to control and exploit the land and the resources of northwestern North America. Dr. Markwyn will examine the scanty particulars of these two men's lives and show how two obscure and under-documented events, widely separated in time, can reveal patterns and connections, connect us to an earlier time and deepen our understanding of Sonoma County's history.
