Governor Seligman Jan 23, 1932 in Carlsbad Caverns National Park Photographed by US Dept of Interior, (Personal Collection) Governor Seligman Jan 23, 1932 in Carlsbad Caverns National Park Photographed by US Dept of Interior, (Personal Collection)

   Since I originally posted this photo, I obtained copies of the original Park Superintendent Monthly reports to the Director National Park Service for January and May 1932. Therefore I am re-posting the photo  with more of the complete history of this photo and detailed descriptions of both the elevator dedication and Governor's Day 1932. The May report contains additional photos of the Governor's party taken  in the Caverns . These may be viewed or ddownloaded by clicking on the link below.

    I never knew that being Governor came with a retinue of Desert Blossoms. Great stuff, Pedro!
