Description
A photograph album of early towns and mining life in Nevada from 1904-1912, with a few images in California.
Background
Henry Curtis Morris (born 1875) was an American mining engineer in Nevada about 1900-1915 and worked for the United States Bureau of Mines. He wrote two books chronicling these years: "Desert Gold and Total Prospecting" (1955) and "The Mining West at the Turn of the Century" (1962), subtitled: "Illustrated accounts of many mining camps that I knew, when they were discovered and richly productive and we could sell our gold and silver without official interference." A few photographs in this album are published in his books.
