Local author seeking New River photos
Staff Report~ 12/17/2014
NEW RIVER – Local author Marcy Miller is seeking historic photographs of New River to be featured in an upcoming book about New River history.
Miller has been chosen by Arcadia Publishing to write a photographic ‘Images of America’ edition on New River history. These books have a strong focus on visual history, so Miller is seeking old and historic photos of New River to be incorporated into her book.
Miller is seeking photos of:
- Early New River residents and characters
- Landscape and geographic features
- Early businesses and residences
- Historical sites, such as military roads, stagecoach stops, and ancient dwellings
- Depictions of events, such as outdoor picnics, early floods and flood damage, horseback rides, ranch work, etc.
Miller is also seeking to interview residents for historical insight and local oral histories.
Miller states she wants to create a book that will reflect the unique character of the New River area. The publisher’s timeline stipulates that all photographs need to be obtained by the end of March 2015.
If you would like to offer photos or historical insights for Miller, contact her at MarcyJMiller06@gmail.com.
