Norm Wisner will be Oracle Historical Society’s guest speaker at this year’s Annual Meeting of the Membership. Norm will be presenting on the “Military Road from Tucson to Camp Grant.” Combining his lifelong experience as a licensed land surveyor specializing in roadway development with a passion for history, Norm will discuss the actual creation of the road as well as notable events along the way.

Norm came from the Finger Lakes region of upstate New York to Tucson as a freshman at the University of Arizona. While he intended to pursue a career in archaeology, he ended up with a degree in engineering because, as he put it, he needed a job in which he could support himself–although he proudly notes that his daughter eventually received her Master’s degree in archaeology. His work in land surveying has taken him to Asia and South America. He served on the Board of Directors of the Historical Society in the 1980s. Please join us to welcome Norm Wisner on November 20.
