COS Discover Science Lecture Series—Thursday, Sept. 19 Gregory Crouch—The Bonanza King
The Discover Science Lecture Series is always free and open to the public. Lectures start at 7 PM at the Davidson Math and Science Center, Room 110. Free parking is available on the top level of the Brian Whalen Parking Complex.
“Gregory Crouch is an author who specializes in adventurous and historic subjects. He has five major books in publication. In his lecture, he will discuss the rags-to-riches American frontier tale of Irish immigrant John Mackay, and the rich body of gold and silver so immensely valuable that it changed the destiny of the United States. John Mackay is the subject of his recent book titled “The Bonanza King: John Mackay and the battle over the greatest riches in America.”
Crouch has published stories in The Atlantic, National Geographic, National Geographic Adventure, Smithsonian, Time and more.”
The Discover Science Lecture Series was founded by the College of Science in 2010, with the goal of bringing the country’s top scientists to the University to share their knowledge, research and wisdom with the community.
“Science encompasses a wonderfully diverse collection of explorations into the unknown. We invite science lovers and the science-curious to join us and experience the extent of the science universe as the best scientists on the planet visit the University of Nevada, Reno for our Discover Science Lecture Series,” Jeff Thompson, Dean of the College of Science said.
