The Presidio Historical Association invites you to a special reception and lecture honoring Colonel Whitney Hall, former PHA president and former Commander of the Presidio, who has left the board after nearly thirty years of service, and Gary Widman, our long serving most recent retiring president.
We will feature a presentation celebrating the Bicentennial of the arrival of the Rurik, the Russian ship carrying a scientific expedition which arrived in the Fall of 1816.
