The Society of California Pioneers presents
First Thursday Lecture Series

The Barbary Plague: The Black Death in Victorian San Francisco, this relatively forgotten event in San Francisco history, will be the topic of Marilyn Chase's discussion on Thursday, May 6th, 2004. Ms. Chase, a reporter for the Wall Street Journal, will take us back to turn of the century San Francisco, when the "Paris of the Pacific" had a population denying the problem of the plague, politicians lying to the public, and men like Dr. Rupert Blue, Quarantine Officer, whose courage became legendary. The evening will begin with a reception at 5:30 with the lecture from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. Admission is $5. On the day of the lecture, the museum will stay open until 6 p.m.

The First Thursday Lecture Series will continue with a discussion of the California grizzly on July 1st.
