Frances Humphrey Lecture Series “Lake Tahoe’s Eccentric George Whittell and his wife Elia” Chautauqua by David and Gayle Woodruff
June 15 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Local authors and historians David and Gayle Woodruff re-enact the characters of one of the wealthiest couples on the West Coast during the 1920s through 1950s. They kept an African Lion for a pet, owned over 25 miles of Lake Tahoe waterfront, built one of the most beautiful estates on Lake Tahoe’s shore, hosted high stakes poker games with the rich and famous, and unintentionally conserved a large portion of Lake Tahoe lands for the public to enjoy today. This lecture will be presented in person and on Zoom. Admission is $10 for adults, members and children age 17 and under are free.
