Details Join us August 11th at 7 p.m. at the Cottrill Opera House in Thomas to learn more about West Virginia's early history. John Alexander Williams, one of the leading scholars of Appalachian history, will present a lecture on Henry Gassaway Davis and how the early industrialist helped shape West Virginia. Williams is the author of such books as Appalachia: A History, and spent many years as a professor at Appalachian State University. His focus in this lecture will be on the "robber baron" Henry Gassaway Davis, who deeply influenced the economy of West Virginia with his Davis Coal and Coke Company, and had a hand in politics through multiple terms in the state legislature and the United State Senate.
