NEXT MEETING:

Date and Time: Thursday, September 9, 2021 @ 5:00 PM MT

Event Subject:   James Monteith: Cartographer, Educator, and Master of the Margins

Speaker:   Andrew J. Rhodes, career civil servant, Department of Defense, and member of Washington Map Society Board of Directors

Description: James Monteith (1831–1890) was a leading figure in American geography education in the late nineteenth century, but his career has been largely forgotten and his contribution to cartography has been underappreciated. His geography volumes included unique illustrations to help the reader visualize terrain on a continental scale and place individual maps in a global context. Monteith's maps were surrounded with remarkable symbology and amplifying data that ought perhaps to earn him the title “master of the margins.”
