Foxey Brown talk Monday

BLUE MOUNTAIN LAKE — The Adirondack Museum, Rt. 28 N. and 30, Blue Mountain Lake, will host the lecture Foxey Brown: The Story of An Adirondack Outlaw, Hermit and Guide on Monday at 7:30 p.m. in the museum’s auditorium. Author Charles Yaple will speak at the event.

Admission is $5 or free for members.

Yaple will tell the story of railroad worker and college student David Brennan who fled to the Adirondack Mountain wilderness in 1890. Brennan then changed his name to David Brown, and he became known as a "Foxey" woodsman and popular guide, until a hunting trip tragedy sparked one of the most extensive manhunts in Adirondack history.

Yaple is Professor Emeritus of Recreation, Parks and Leisure Studies at State University of New York College at Cortland where he has taught environmental and outdoor education courses for 35 years. Dr. Yaple is also director of the Coalition for Education in the Outdoors and editor of Taproot, the organization’s journal of outdoor education.

The Adirondack Museum is holding the lecture as a part of its Monday Evening Lecture Series.
