CCHS Lunch & Learn: "David Brainard, Arctic Explorer"

Wednesday, April 25, 2018

Please join speaker Linda Ruthig to hear about this heartbreaking story of courage and endurance in the face of abysmal circumstances. David Brainard was a young man who grew up in Freetown and attended Cortland Normal School. He was chosen to join the ill fated Greely Expedition in 1881. They planned to spend 3 years collecting scientific data. Supply ships never arrived and many of the men died. Bring your own lunch if you wish, and we will provide dessert and beverages.
