The title of our October 17 Westerners meeting is "The Continuing Case of Spokane Garry." In 1917, William S. Lewis wrote The Case of Spokane Garry, the first biography of an amazing man, Chief Garry, influential in settling Spokane. One focus of this book was the dispossession of Garry from the land he had occupied and farmed since about 1860.
In “The Continuing Case of Spokane Garry,” Dr. Dave Beine will present some current findings about the recently disputed location of this land and offer some intriguing stories of the various characters involved in this historic land dispute.
Dr. Beine is Dean of the College of Global Engagement and Professor of Intercultural Studies at Great Northern University (formerly Moody Bible Institute) here in Spokane.
