On Saturday, April 23, at 11 a.m., WNMU Associate Professor of History Dr. Scott Fritz will present “How Government Policies Affected Businesses in Grant County: An Economic History of Southwestern New Mexico, 1870-1952” as part of a series hosted by the Silver City Museum.
Interested community members are invited to attend either at The Silco Theatre or online. (Register to attend via Zoom here.)
The Silver City Museum’s exhibit on the business history of Silver City is based on research Dr. Fritz conducted last summer.
Javier Marrufo, who is an alumnus of the WNMU history program and is now the curator at the Silver City Museum, is also presenting. His talk will be on the history of segregation in Grant County.
