First Tuesday Talks Lecture Series

John Whitty was born in North Bend, and was almost 9 years old when the U.S. entered the war.  Seven of his uncles served in the military, in both the European and Pacific theaters.  John has lived in the Bay Area since birth, except for two years in the U.S. Air Force.  John became a lawyer in 1956 and has practiced in Coos Bay for more than 60 years.  He has also had a lasting interest in World War II and has a large library of books about the war (more than 32 lineal feet).  John is also a student of local history, with one book “Coos County Bench, Bar & Beyond” and a shorter booklet “The Coos Bay Area from 1940 until now” for sale in the museum’s gift store.  John is working on two more books about the history of the Coos Bay area.

We are currently not able to record all lectures. When they become available, recordings will be posted here.
