AFRC 2015 Industrial Combustion Symposium

September 9-11, 2015
Historic Fort Douglas Officers Club
University of Utah, Salt Lake City, Utah

In 1862 in the midst of the United States Civil War, Camp Douglas was established to keep an eye on supposed secessionist tendencies in the Utah Territory.  No worries, no secession and in 1878 Camp Douglas was upgraded to Fort Douglas and in due course to the glorious University of Utah that we find there today. As far as United States history goes, that’s about as good as it gets and about as far back as it goes in the West.  Below are listed some of the topics that will be presented.  The AFRC 2015 Organizing Committee cordially invite your participation!  To register click here
