Cesar Alejandro BecerraBefore the trading post. Before the Avenue. Before the Banks. William had to meet Mary and Mary had to meet William. They did so in a far off continent that had just sounded the alarm that gold had been found.

Fresh from his month long journey to Australia, historian Cesar A. Becerra will give us a talk on his research trip to follow in the footsteps of William Brickell — how he chased the gold rush — with notes and photos of how they traveled back the very next day after William and Mary Brickell were married in Melbourne.

Joining Cesar to tell the interesting tale of how this project got started will be Mayor Don Slesnick.
