A Story Nearly Told: Histories of a Wyoming Homestead

Saturday, June 19, 2021

The Campbell County Rockpile Museum is pleased to announce a presentation and book signing by Christine Scoggan Gillette. Mrs. Gillette, the niece of the late Olive Marquiss, and Dick and Lucille Dumbrill, has written a history of the Dumbrill Ranch in Weston County. Using memoirs and letters, the author gives us a glimpse into this family’s experiences homesteading on the Wyoming prairie, starting in 1910. Christine Scoggan Gillette is a fourth-generation teacher whose passion for literature and writing began at the University of California at Davis, where she earned her undergraduate degree in English and German. She later enrolled at Iowa State University, earning a Master of Arts degree in modernist poetry. She eventually earned a Ph.D. from the University of Denver with specialties in Victorian literature and rhetoric and composition.
