Lecture: Out of the Shadows, Researching Robert Campbell

Tuesday, June 28 from 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm

 

New Research on the career of Robert Camp­bell has revealed how Fur Trade his­to­ri­ans, often with lit­tle research, repeat­ed­ly repro­duced wrong infor­ma­tion. Join Alan McFar­land here at the Camp­bell House as he explores con­flict­ing infor­ma­tion about Robert Camp­bel­l’s life and career, and how authors often rely on out­dat­ed and poor­ly researched sources. It will also cov­er new dis­cov­er­ies and talk about the Camp­bell let­ters that are still miss­ing. Camp­bell descen­dent Alan McFar­land will trav­el from Ire­land for the lec­ture and set the record straight.

Alan McFar­land is Robert Camp­bel­l’s great-nephew and was born just a stone’s throw from the Camp­bell ances­tral home near Plumbridge in Coun­ty Tyrone.  A retired mil­i­tary offi­cer and politi­cian, McFar­land has made the study of Robert Camp­bel­l’s life his hob­by and is work­ing on a book about the Fur Trade. 

All lec­tures are at the Camp­bell House and are free and open to the pub­lic. Reser­va­tions are not required. There is lim­it­ed free park­ing in the Muse­um lot and street park­ing is free on Sundays.
