Ramsey County Historical Society presents

Greg Brick, Minnesota Caves: History and Lore

History Revealed Series
January 25, 2018
Thursday, 7:00 pm
Ramsey County Roseville Library

Free and open to all.

Join RCHS for History Revealed in 2018, featuring the best of local history authors, historians and archaeologists talking about a wide range of topics drawn from the heritage and traditions of Ramsey County.

Minnesota Caves: History and Lore (Arcadia Publishing, 2017) is Greg’s third book on caves and the first book on this exact topic in 50 years. This powerpoint tour of Minnesota caves highlights the caves with significant narrative history, illustrated with historic images, never before published, from the National Cave Museum in Kentucky. While most of the caves still exist, many are not publicly accessible, and some never did exist except in the minds of explorers. Copies of the book will be available for purchase.

Greg Brick Ph.D. was employed as a hydrogeologist at several environmental consulting firms, has taught geology at local colleges and universities, and now works on the Minnesota Spring Inventory at the Department of Natural Resources. He has edited the Journal of Spelean History since 2003, published more than 100 articles about caves, and was the recipient of the 2005 Cave History Award from the National Speleological Society. His first book, Iowa Underground: A Guide to the State’s Subterranean Treasures, was published by Trails Media Group in 2004. His second book, Subterranean Twin Cities, published by the University of Minnesota Press in 2009, won an award from the American Institute of Architects. His work has been featured in National Geographic Adventure magazine as well as on the History Channel. He has led guided tours of caves for the Minnesota Historical Society and the University of Minnesota’s College of Continuing Education.
