Following the Golden Spike: Time, Place and Change along the First Transcontinental Railroad

Tuesday, June 18, 5:30PM Reception, 6:30PM Lecture
Stanley and Dorothy Truhlsen Lecture Hall
Throughout the 150 years since the completion of the first transcontinental railroad, many parts of the 1,800-mile route between Omaha and Sacramento have experienced enormous change. Some sections are busy, three-track, state-of-the-art mainline; others are abandoned in the desert wind. Through this black and white photographs, Drake Hokanson will explore the layered past, the natural and human
geography and the deeper meaning of this linear landscape.
Drake Hokanson is an author, photographer and independent scholar. He is the author/coauthor of three books, has edited and contributed to several others and has exhibited photographs coast to coast. His other experience includes teaching photography and nonfiction writing at the university level for some 30 years.
