Description
A photograph album and other images of the 1909 Colorado River expedition led by river runner Nathaniel Galloway and financier Julius F. Stone.
Background
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.
