The end of World War I—“the War to End all Wars”—

was declared on November 11, 1918. In memory of this 100-year milestone,

the Cheyenne Genealogical & Historical Society will host a free, educational

program on “Wyoming and World War I” on Tuesday, January 8, 2019 in the 1st floor Cottonwood Room at the Laramie County Library.

          Local historian and speaker, Mike Kassel will take participants back in

time to explore how Wyoming was involved in the WWI effort by looking at

historical events gleaned from newspapers and other resources. Kassel is the

assistant director of the Old West Museum in Cheyenne and adjunct

professor of Wyoming History at LCCC. He has worked in museums for many

years including the Mark Twain Boyhood Home in Hannibal, Mo., and the

Gardner Museum of Architecture and Design in Quincy, Il. He was also the

installer of the Molly Brown interpretive exhibit at the Molly Brown

Birthplace Museum in Hannibal, Mo. He holds a masters degree in history from

the University of Wyoming, and began working at the Old West Museum in 2001.

Registration is not necessary for this program, which is open to the public.

The meeting begins at 6:15 p.m. with a short business meeting, followed by the program scheduled to begin at 7:00 p.m. For more information, call 630-0924.
