The Spanish Presence in the Pacific Northwest:
Manuel Quimper's 1790 Exploration of the Strait of Juan de Fuca

Dr. Pablo Restrepo-Gautier

Tuesday, March 21st , 7:30
Cornett B135, UVic Campus, Victoria

On May 20th, 1790,  Lieutenant Francisco de Eliza gave Sub-Lieutenant Manuel Quimper orders to explore the Strait of Juan de Fuca. With Gonzalo López de Haro, Quimper set sail from the Spanish settlement, Santa Cruz de Nutka, on May 31st of the same year, leaving the strait for Monterrey on August 16th. Quimper and Haro explored and mapped the strait and took possession of several sites on behalf of the Spanish Crown. This talk will provide a brief survey of the Spanish presence in the Pacific Northwest, will outline how Quimper’s expedition was carried out and will explain how acts of possession were performed.

Bio: Dr. Pablo Restrepo-Gautier is an Associate Professor in the Department of Hispanic and Italian Studies. He specializes on 17th-century Spanish drama and textual criticism. Since 2105, Dr. Restrepo-Gautier has been researching the manuscripts of the 18th-century Spanish exploration of the Pacific Northwest.

The Archaeological Society meets the 3rd Tuesday of every month (Jan-May, Sept-Nov) at UVic’s Cornett building.
