Language of Materials



This collection includes the research materials and notes of Glenda Bell and Barbara Fisher from their exhibition and presentation titled "Yellowstone's Faithful Tourists in the National Park." The exhibition and the presentation focused on tourism in the national park, specifically the first white women in the park and their experiences. The exhibition ran from June 9th 1989 to November 30 1989. Bell and Fisher's presentation was very "spirited" and had a fun little script that made the presentation like an informational play.
