Mae Dean is glad she didn't miss this engaging presentation by Jan Conn, who is best known as the first woman to climb Devils Tower. Jan spoke about her adventurous life during the 1950's. Since that time, she and her husband Herb remained active charting cave routes while spelunking in the Midwest .
