On December 21, Westerners member Robert Heacock will present “The early Missionaries in the Pacific Northwest.” Robert will discuss various missionaries, their integration with the fur trade, plus the hardships, efforts, and tragedies they endured while working with Natives and early settlers in the area we call home.
Robert Heacock is a Kennewick, Washington native, and resides in Liberty Lake (Spokane), Washington. He is a member of the Pacific Northwest Region of the Lewis and Clark Trail Heritage Foundation, Inc., and serves on different committees for the Foundation. He is also past President, Washington Chapter LCTHF, an officer and Historian of Spokane Westerners Corral, and member the Ice Age Floods Institute.
Robert is a frequent contributor to the Washington Chapter LCTHF newsletter Worthy of Notice, and is author of ‘Wind Hard from the West - The Lewis and Clark Expedition on the Snake and Columbia Rivers‘. Robert’s current hobby job is as Historian on the Snake and Columbia River cruise boats, which has provided an opportunity to gather information on several topics.
