The 2011 Calendar- July

For July, the calendar features two slides in a series that appear to be from the late 1950’s of men working for the U.S. Department of the Interior possibly working on oil or gas exploration in the American west. Luckily there are a few captions written on the back of these beautiful Kodachromes. The slide of the red CJ-5 is titled, “Noel in jeep on Long Point Mesa, on Long Point Mesa, Arizona” and the slide of the CJ3-A is labeled “N(orth): Lee Eicher in jeep, R at Beaver Mesa, Colo & Utah.” Other slides are contained in the station wagon album and make reference to other locations in Arizona and the Utah, Colorado area, drilling and a Carl Lipp, Bill Owen and George Mowat. If you happen to know any of these men or can supply me with any further information you can contact me at
