Chrystal Lansford Hastings (1818-1870) is a Western enigma. Termed an "incessant activist with boundless energies," the Ohio lawyer is vilified by some because the Donner Party followed the difficult Hastings Cutoff in 1846, with disastrous results. He is condemned by others because Hastings allegedly encouraged Western emigration in the hopes of becoming emperor of an independent California. Learn more about this famous pioneer guide when Bill Chrystal presents Lansford Hastings at Central Nevada Museum on Saturday May 24 at 6 p.m. and Sunday May 25 at 4 p.m. In traditional Chautauqua style, Chrystal becomes Hastings and discusses his life and times. Chrystal, as the character Hastings, will answer questions from the audi- ence. Finally, Chrystal will step out of character and give the audience an opportunity to ask him questions about the character from today's perspective. The public is cordially invited to attend this program, sponsored by Central Nevada Museum. There is no admis- sion charge. "Lansford Hastings: Scoundrel or Guide" is funded by the Nevada Humanities Committee, the state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities. For more information, call the Cen- tral Nevada Museum at (702)-482-9676. "Margaret Breen, Donner Party Survivor," By Doris Dwyer Margaret Breen, along with her husband and seven children, were members of the Donner Party and shared the suffering of their fellow emigrants. She was born in County Carlow, Ireland and departed from Independence, Missouri for California in the spring of 1846. A devout Catholic, Mrs. Breen worked tenaciously to ensure the survival of her family during the winter of entrapment. Due largely to her efforts, the Breen family was one of only two families in the Donner party to survive without the loss of human life. The choices with which the Breens were faced led to conflicting interpretations regarding their place in the Donner Party story. After the ordeal the Breens became the first American family to settle in San Juan Bautista. Margaret spent the remainder of her life there sur- rounded by her family at the inn that her family owned, and near the Catholic mis- sion that she loved. Meet Margaret Breen when Doris Dwyer portrays this character on Saturday, May 24 at 4 p.m. and Sunday, May 25 at 6 p.m. This event is open to the public, and there is no admission charge.
