The History of the West series at Tillamook County Pioneer Museum will conclude this Saturday, Sept. 16, with a return visit from historian Dr. Richard Etulain.

His slideshow presentation will cover traditional, overlooked and new stories about the West, spotlighting characters including Buffalo Bill, Billy the Kid, Calamity Jane, John Wayne, Zane Grey and Louis L’Amour.

An entertaining and interesting speaker, Etulain is Professor Emeritus of History from the University of New Mexico as well as the author of more than 50 books, including “The Life and Legends of Calamity Jane” and “Lincoln and Oregon Country Politics in the Civil War Era.”

His talk, which is free and open to the public, will start at 3 pm at the museum, 2106 2nd Street.
