Have you ever tried to retrace the steps of an explorer from before your time or used an old map to guide you around a modern landscape? In this presentation by AMC Archivist, Becky Fullerton, see the White Mountains through early 20th century hiker journal excerpts, historical and contemporary photos, and maps. Explore in words and pictures how wayfinding and backpacking have and have not changed over the course of a century or more. Free and open to all.
Presented as part of the Museum’s summer exhibition: "Wayfinding: Maps of the White Mountains." The Summer 2021 Speaker Series was made possible with support from New Hampshire Humanities, in partnership with the National Endowment for the Humanities. Learn more at www.nhhumanities.org
