Ellen Baumler presents “Untold Stories of Montana Minorities.” These stories open a dialogue about minorities in our communities, both past and present. African-American, Chinese, Japanese and Jewish pioneers helped anchor Montana in myriad ways. Each group made lasting contributions and left significant legacies revealing a state history as diverse and as compelling as its topography.
Baumler earned her Ph.D. from the University of Kansas in English, classics, and history. She was the Montana Historical Society’s interpretive historian from 1992 until her retirement in 2018.
