Speaker: Steven R. Butler, author of John Neely Bryan: The Founder of Dallas
Dallas Heritage Village, the Dallas Historical Society, Old Red Museum, and Preservation Dallas co-present a lecture featuring Steven R. Butler, author of John Neely Bryan: The Father of Dallas. It is not only the story of the founding father of one of America’s largest cities but also the story of the individuals, largely journalists, who wrote about Bryan in the past. Drawing both on their work and his own original research, Butler has managed to produce a scholarly but readable narrative that forms the most complete picture of the enigmatic Dallas founder that’s been published to date. Books will be available for purchase and signing by the author at the event.
