Dr. Reba Grandrud will be our presenter in October, sharing her knowledge of John H. Slaughter’s San Bernardino Ranch in southeastern Cochise County. Dr. Grandrud earned an undergraduate degree in education, and graduate degrees in Southwest History and History of the American West from the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque before moving to Arizona in 1982. It was in 1983 while she was working as a research historian/writer for a Phoenix architectural firm that Dr. Grandrud became aware of the Slaughter San Bernardino Ranch. Although she’s worn many historically-inclined hats since then, she continues her involvement with the ranch through today. She feels honored to have been a part of the AHS Museum/Tucson volunteer team who helped produce the John and Viola Slaughter Family exhibit that opened in September 2018. Dr. Grandrud continues to work as the John Slaughter Ranch historian and is also a San Bernardino Ranch tour guide with Ambos Tours of Nogales, Arizona. She volunteers and works with numerous Southwestern organizations and groups. SShe is also the author of Sunnyslope (Images of America) which tells the story of the desert camp turned tuberculosis refuge, eventually becoming the John C. Lincoln Hospital in Phoenix, AZ.

This is a Brown Bag meeting, so bring your own meal. Pathfinders’ Board will provide dessert and coffee. The meeting is free and open to the public. Free parking at the Arizona History Museum parking lot one block west of the AHS at the corner of Euclid and 2nd Street. Entrance from 2nd Street. Drive straight in.
