Brown Bag Program: Gravatt to discuss Idaho WWI aviation

— First program set for Aug. 15

It’s that time of year again to get some education while you lunch.

The Idaho County Historical Society and the Bicentennial Historical Museum will again sponsor the Brown Bag Program.

Sessions will be held each Wednesday Aug. 15 through Oct. 3 at the Bicentennial Historical Museum basement meeting room, 305 North College Street, noon to 1 p.m. These programs are free to the public and those attending are invited to bring lunch to eat while they listen.

The first program is set for next week. Aug. 15, and will feature Mark Gravatt with “American Aviation WWI.”

Gravatt’s great uncle was a pilot who flew in WWI with Quinten Roosevelt, President Teddy Roosevelt’s youngest son. They were shot down and Roosevelt was killed.

“There are many Idaho connections to aviation and World War 1,” Gravatt said. “I think participants will find the history very interesting, especially since it is the 100th anniversary of the war.”

Following weeks are as follows:

•Aug. 22: Honor Flight with Andy Riener

•Aug. 29: More than Half A Century of CIAA Art with Marlene O’Neil

•Sept. 5: Arnold Family History with Jinny Cash

•Sept. 12: Nez Perce History with James Lawyer

•Sept. 19: 100 Years of Farming History with Don and Charlotte DeArmond

•Sept. 26: Dram, Scotland with Floyd Whitley

•Oct. 3: Back Country Pilots with Bob Black
