Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
Donald William Page, born in Montclair, New Jersey on October 12, 1884, spent much of his career in Mexico, Ecuador, Spain, Portugal, and other countries. During World War I, he served as a captain in the United States Army Corps of Engineers and in 1926 became the building inspector for the city of Tucson, Arizona. Page's interest in history and archaeology led to a in-depth study of Arizona's past. He excavated and mapped the mission of San Agustin de Tucson, located the walls of the presidio, and discovered and mapped numerous Indian sites. Appointed Historical Advisor to the National Park Service in 1936, Page became technical director of exhibitions for the new museum at Tumacacori National Monument. He continued his research field work, and writings about Arizona and the Southwest until his death in 1958.
