A photograph album and other images of
the 1909 Colorado River expedition led by river runner Nathaniel Galloway and financier
Julius F. Stone.
The Galloway-Stone expedition was formed in 1909 by financier Julius F. Stone for the
purpose of running the rapids of the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon for pure sport.
The party consisted of Stone; Raymond Cogswell, photographer; C.C. Sharp; Seymour S.
Dubendorff; and leader of the party, Nathaniel Galloway. The group traveled down the
Colorado River from the Green River in Utah to Needles, Arizona in 5 weeks, encountering
only minor problems. The party gained notoriety for being the first to successfully navigate
the difficult route for sport.
