The colonel finally returns to the USA!


As part of The Explorer's Club lecture series, John Keay, author of the highly acclaimed The Tartan Turban, will be discussing his book in New York on Monday 1 October and Boston on Tuesday 2 October 2018.

The event promises to deconstruct Alexander Gardner's travels, from the American West to the Asian East.

The Explorers Club is an international multidisciplinary professional society dedicated to the advancement of field research and the ideal that it is vital to preserve the instinct to explore. Since its inception in 1904, the Club has served as a meeting point and unifying force for explorers and scientists worldwide. It promotes the scientific exploration of land, sea, air, and space by supporting research and education in the physical, natural and biological sciences.

The Club’s members have been responsible for an illustrious series of famous firsts: first to the North Pole, first to the South Pole, first to the summit of Mount Everest, first to the deepest point in the ocean, and first to the surface of the moon. It is headquartered at 46 East 70th Street in New York City.
