Klamath County Museum manager Todd Kepple will narrate a presentation of panoramic photos taken in the 1920s by Medford photographer Burhl Harwood. The collection of photos includes scenes from numerous sites around the mythical state of Jefferson. Harwood's photos captured changes in the region at a time when automobile travel was rapidly becoming popular and industry was booming. Kepple has been manager of the Klamath County Museum for the past 12 years. He has served for three years on the Oregon Heritage Commission.
The monthly “Windows in Time” lunchtime lectures are offered free to the public from 12 noon – 1:00 p.m. on the first Wednesday of each month at the Medford Library and the second Wednesday of each month at the Ashland Library, except this month when Medford's lecture will be held on July 18 due to the Independence Day holiday. These lectures feature well-known writers and historians, and bring alive the people, values, and events that shaped our Southern Oregon heritage.
