Speaker Andrew J. Rhodes Map Societies sponsor
James Monteith: Cartographer, Educator, and Master of the Margins.

Thursday, September 9, 2021, 7:00 pm New York (EDT) time  : the Boston, California, Chicago, New York, Philip Lee Phillips, Rocky Mountain, Texas, and Washington Map Societies sponsor Andrew J. Rhodes on “James Monteith: Cartographer, Educator, and Master of the Margins.” Monteith (1831–1890) was a leading figure in American geography education in the late 19th century, but his career has been largely forgotten and his contribution to cartography has been underappreciated. His geography volumes included unique illustrations to help the reader visualize terrain on a continental scale, and place individual maps in a global context. Monteith’s maps were surrounded with remarkable symbology and amplifying data that ought perhaps to earn him the title “Master of the Margins.” RSVP John Docktor at washmap@gmail.com to receive the meeting ID and passcode.
