David Grabitske

David Grabitske is the manager of outreach services at the Minnesota Historical Society in St. Paul, Minnesota.

In celebration of Glacier National Park’s centennial in 2010, Glacier National Park/National Park Service & Montana Historical Society are organizing a major exhibit on the Park’s history and “pre-history”, i.e. before its establishment as a national park. The exhibit development team is in the process of identifying objects, souvenirs, artwork, photographs, documents, American Indian (Blackfeet, Piegan, etc.) materials, etc. in public and private collections for consideration for the exhibit which will open at the Montana Historical Society in Helena in November 2009. The Park has been a favorite western destination for Minnesotans over the past 100 years and may have donated materials documenting their visits to local history organizations in Minnesota. Please contact Montana Historical Society Curator of Collections Jennifer Bottomly O’looney, 406-444-4711, if you have questions and/or information to share. Thank you!
