Monday, November 25, 2-3pm. Bemis Library. Lord Dunraven. Actor Kurtis Kelly will portray Lord Dunraven, who was one of Colorado’s most intriguing land-owners, and one of the most controversial. Windham Thomas Wyndham-Quin, the 4th Earl of Dunraven, left a tremendous legacy in the American West. His name embellishes Mount Dunrav-en in Rocky Mountain National Park and Dunraven Pass in Yellowstone. Discovering Colorado as a hunter in the 1870s, Dunraven eventually settled in Estes Park where through questionable means, he would soon claim dominion over nearly 10,000 acres—stirring accusations of driving out American settlers. His name became associated, perhaps unfairly, with the first murder in Estes Park. And yet, he was popular throughout the U.S.—as a writer, yachtsman, and well-traveled journalist. Was Dunraven a scoundrel? Or perhaps one of Colorado’s earliest conservationists? Join the “jury” at this fascinating first-person re-enactment of the life of the “Colorado Earl”—and share in the exciting stories of Colorado’s early days—when tourism was at its dawn. Performer Kurtis Kelly is a stage actor who has been portraying historic characters for over fif-teen years. During the summer, he appears in Estes Park’s downtown outdoor storyteller series.
