    Nevada Political Broadside - Nevada State Officers and Legislators 15th Session 1891, Photographed by J. H. Crockwell. 21.5" x 28.25". An amazing political broadside picturing one hundred and seventeen Nevada officers and legislators. Each photo has been taken by famed Comstock Lode photographer Jas. H. Crockwell in his Virginia City studio and printed in Carson City. The center of the broadside contains an image of the Nevada State Building in Carson City. The individual photos include the governor, judicial members, senators, state officers, assemblymen, librarian, lady attaches, senate attaches and the assembly attaches. Many of those pictured began their careers in the 1860s at the Comstock Lode as pioneer mining men, William M. Stewart, Ch. H. Belknap, Roswell K. Colcord, and J. P. Jones to name but a few. Photographer James Hezekiah Crockwell came to Virginia City, Nevada in the mid-1880s after working in Salt Lake City, Utah. In 1893 he left Nevada returning to Utah. During his time in Nevada he left one of the most important photographic records of the state's mining industry. Damp stains and old smoothed fold creases with a large section missing from the top corner.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
