Sept. 5: The Hurricane of 1919 in History and Heritage

Sept. 5: The Hurricane of 1919 in History and Heritage

The Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi Historical Forum, in collaboration with the Mary and Jeff Bell Library, is hosting “The Hurricane of 1919 in History and Heritage,” a presentation by the Illinois State University Professor of History, Dr. Alan Lessoff, on Thursday, Sept. 5, at 6:30 p.m. at the Art Museum of South Texas, 1902 N. Shoreline. The talk, which is part of “Remembering the Hurricane of 1919: 100 Year Anniversary,” commemorates the massive hurricane which struck the Corpus Christi Bay in 1919, burying downtown under ten feet of debris and claiming as many as 1,000 lives. Lessoff is the author of “Where Texas Meets the Sea – Corpus Christi and its History,” a history of the Coastal Bend, which was published by the University of Texas Press in 2015. Photos of the hurricane and testimonies from eyewitness will be exhibited before and after the lecture, which will be followed by light refreshments. This event is free and open to the public. For more information, email Claudia.Rueda@tamucc.edu.
