"Historic Documents And Photographs Of Tombstone"
by Ben Traywick
When Ben Traywick arrived in Tombstone back in 1968, he noticed the historical documents were gradually disappearing. So he began a program of copying them. This book contains pictures of early Tombstone and legal documents that historians have used for their stories and movies about Tombstone.
Numerous documents, photos, letters, city records, licenses of boomtown days. See what the town and people looked like in the violent years.
Ben T. Traywick earned 10 battle stars during his tour of duty in the Navy during World War II. He retired as a chemist, having worked in the explosives industry, and moved to Tombstone, Arizona. In 1957, Ben sold his first historical article and has never looked away from his lifelong interest. His first publication in the Tombstone Epitaph came in 1963, paving the road of a writing career that investigates virtually every aspect of that legendary
Wild West town and the persona's of its history. Since then, he has written more than 600 newspaper and magazine articles and has published over 40 pamphlets and books. Ben is the director of the Tombstone Tourism Association and the official town historian.
