Jerry Rohde on 'The Humboldt Bay Shoreline'
Since 1990, Jerry Rohde has been one of our most fascinating speakers and writers on Humboldt County history. The first volume of his history of Humboldt County places, 'Both Sides of the Bluff', was published in 2014. The second volume, 'Southern Humboldt Indians', is currently being prepared for publication by the Humboldt State University Press. Jerry and his wife Gisela have written three guidebooks to the local redwood parks; he is also a coauthor of 'Traveling the Trinity Highway'. A number of his previous lectures were filmed and are available to check out from the library as DVDs.
You can prepare for the presentation by downloading a free copy of 'Humboldt Bay Shoreline, North Eureka to South Arcata: A History of Cultural Influences' from the HSU Digital Commons website.
