Presented by William Lokey - Adventurer, Mountaineer, Emergency
Manager and Polar Logistician
Learn about the greatest adventure in US and Canadian history, from
the first rumors of gold in the Yukon in the mid 1800’s, to how it brought the
Pacific Northwest out of the depression after the Crash of 1893, and how it is
still impacting America today.
About the Speaker:
William Lokey has enjoyed a 50-year career of travel and
adventure, supporting science in the Polar Regions and helping communities
prepare for, respond to, and recover from disaster.
During his summers in college (he has a degree in Art from Kenyon
College in Gambier, Ohio), he worked for the Juneau Icefield Research Program
supporting student training and research programs. Later, he managed
logistics and provided survival training for the US Antarctic Program, doing
four tours, wintering over on three occasions.
After Antarctica, William had a 40-year career in emergency
management, working at the local, state, and federal levels and as a
consultant. He has managed preparedness, response, and recovery
operations for hurricanes, earthquakes, floods, tornadoes, winter storms,
volcanic eruptions, wildland fires, and terrorist attacks. He has shared
his expertise throughout the USA, Canada, the United Kingdom, Ecuador,
Singapore, Thailand and Japan.
William has climbed mountains and led expeditions to peaks in the
United States, Canada, France, Mexico, New Zealand and Africa. Now
retired, he enjoys travel, mountaineering, skiing, and sharing his experiences
with schools, service clubs, and on cruise ships.
