?Join us for a special Halloween Edition of our Virtual Lecture Series on Thursday, October 28 at 5 pm MDT as Dr. Erin Baxter presents “The Curious Case of Colorado Cannibal Alferd Packer.”

In the winter of 1874, mining prospector Alferd Packer and five companions tried to cross the southern Rocky Mountains. Only Packer lived. The bodies of his companions were soon found and firestorm of controversy ensued. In this lecture, you’ll learn more about Packer and the events surrounding this creepy, 147 year-old murder mystery through archaeological and historical evidence.
