In his talk, John will speak on the connection between the Angels Camp mines and the lumber mills above Murphys, followed by an era of needing more box lumber than could be produced.

John Hofstetter was a teacher in Murphys & the Principal at Valley Springs Elementary. In Murphys, he taught many children from families working for Blagen Lumber Company or S.C. Linebaugh. After 38 years of teaching for salary, John retired. He is now the Executive Director of the Sierra Nevada Logging Museum.
