Turtle Soup - Hooky Jack
December 13, 2019 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFeed your mind and your belly with Turtle Soup, featuring a presentation on historic Black Hills figures or events and a bowl of soup provided by Angel’s Catering.
This week, Corey Christianson presents, "Hooky Jack."
Hooky Jack is a man of Rapid City lore. He was a night watchman for Rapid City for a little over 40 years, and his legacy lives on with the Rapid City Police Department.
Jack’s life was not an easy one. Being a not-so-good miner had its downfalls, but he always bounced back. This talk will dive into the story of Hooky Jack and Rags ... and what it means to be part of Rapid City lore.
This story will be shared by The Journey Museum and Learning Center’s Administration, Curation, and Exhibits Coordinator, Corey Christianson.
As a Coast Guard brat, she has moved 11 times but claims Wisconsin as home. She received her undergraduate degree in history and English from the University of South Dakota. She went on to get her masters degree with an emphasis in museum studies from the University of Oklahoma.
In her off time, Christianson volunteers at the South Dakota Air and Space Museum and helps the Base Historian with his archives. To date, she has spent over 1,075 hours volunteering.
Admission is $12 for adults, $10 for seniors, half-off for members. Call 605-394-6923 to reserve tickets.
