This will be a short webinar introducing the Historical Society's oral history featuring local legend Dolph Kuss. Dolph came to Durango in the early 1950s and created the recreation programs that Durango is now known for, from fishing to swimming to tennis to skiing and beyond. We will introduce a "podcast" series you will be able to download to hear Robert McDaniel's interview of Dolph. There is no charge for the webinar which will be recorded. Please register here.
