                                  In Their Footsteps
                              Astoria:  History in Images

      Lewis  and  Clark  National  Historical  Park,  Fort  Clatsop is pleased to
      announce  the  next  installment  of  its  In Their Footsteps free speakers
      series.    The  program  is Astoria:  History in Images by Jeffrey Smith on
      Sunday,  May  20  at  1:00 p.m. in the Netul River Room of the Fort Clatsop
      visitor center.

      Drawing on the more than 23,000 photographs in the Columbia River Maritime
      Museum’s archives, Jeffrey Smith has compiled the recent book Astoria, part
      of the Images of America series by Arcadia Publications.  He will share
      some of the images that, for a variety of reasons, were left out of this
      book and the stories that go along with these historic photos of Astoria.

      Smith is the curator at the Columbia River Maritime Museum where he has
      worked for the past 13 years. With a life-long interest in history he
      graduated with a degree in the subject from Portland State University and
      taught briefly before entering the museum field 26 years ago.

      The book, Astoria is available for purchase at the Lewis & Clark National
      Park Association bookstore in the visitor center.  Smith will have a
      book-signing following his presentation.

      This  third  Sunday forum is sponsored by the Lewis and Clark National Park
      Association  and the National Park Service.  These programs are held in the
      Netul River Room of Fort Clatsop’s visitor center and are free of charge.

      For more information, call the park at (503) 861-2471.
