Ravalli County Museum Presents Living History Thursday

It never would’ve happened. The two women, who made their own types of history in Missoula, probably would never have been seen together in public.

But, in this presentation by Kim Kaufman and Evelyn Widhalm, schoolteacher Emma Slack Dickenson and Missoula Madam Mary Gleim will be “Two Gals Gossiping.” Sponsored by Humanities Montana and the Darby Pioneer Museum, the presentation will be Thursday evening, November 15, from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Ravalli County Museum.

It’s part of the Thursday Speaker Series at the museum and coincides with their weekly late opening event, which is supported by Marcus Daly Memorial Hospital.

Emma Slack was a renowned teacher in the Missoula area with students coming from the Bitterroot Valley and all around the town for her classes. She later married and took the name Emma Dickenson.

Meanwhile, Mary Gleim ran a couple of brothels on Front Street in Missoula in the late 1800s. Her story is quite different from Emma’s, but in their imaginary conversation they find parallels. We know that you will be entertained.
