Event Details

presented by Steve Vavrus, President, Roy Chapman Andrews Society 

Learn about the fascinating life and adventdures of the Beloit native who became the executive director at the American Museum of Natural History in New York. Famous for his harrowing expeditions, including the first-ever discovery of dinosaur eggs in the Gobi Desert, Andrews is considered by many to be the likely inspiration for Indiana Jones. Their many similarities include swashbuckling adventures, near-death experiences, travels in Asia, a fear of snakes, and even their trademark wide-brimmed hats.
