Local historian, Bob Simpson, will give a talk on Friday, Feb. 8 at the Oro Valley Public Library at 2:00 p.m. focusing on the Sutherland family of Oro Valley. The family lived in Catalina State Park. The Sutherland Wash and Sutherland Trail were named after them. Who knows perhaps a surprise namesake guest or two might attend the lecture.
Bob Simpson is a retired Foreign Service Officer and is publishing a two-volume history of the area from Catalina State Park to the Biosphere.
