The Western History Lecture Series presents Margaret O'Mara, Scott and Dorothy Bullitt Professor of American History at the University of Washington. Margaret's talk, "Billionaires of the American West: From the Big Four To Big Tech" will be held on Thursday, May 18, 2023, and is co-hosted by the Bill Lane Center and the Stanford Department of History. The American West has produced enormous business empires and personal fortunes with outsized influence on American culture, economy, and politics, from the Gilded Age to the present day. Drawing upon her new research, Margaret O’Mara considers 150 years of extreme wealth in the West, its causes and consequences, and the commonalities of personality, politics, and place that tie Western billionaires past and present.
