The Grand Canyon Historical Society has established a collection of historical materials in the "Special Collections" area at the Northern Arizona University's Cline Library in Flagstaff, Arizona, where letters, papers and photographs are cataloged and stored archivally for research.
Donations to the GCHS archives at NAU Cline Library, Special Collections and Archives Dept. are welcome. After perusing the Archives, please write the Special Collections and Archives staff at firstname.lastname@example.org for a personal consultation.
We also are making available online a collection from the Greenlaw photo album.
Additionally, we work closely with the Museum Collection at Grand Canyon Nation Park. If you have Grand Canyon memorabilia you would like to consider placing in the Park's collection, please contact Kim_Besom@nps.gov and/or Colleen_Hyde@nps.gov
Samples from Collection
Eddie Alvin Newman, born in 1900, was a Grand Canyon resident and employee of the Santa Fe Railway during the 1920s and 1930s. The photographs in this collection were from his personal album, and many are attributed to him as the photographer. Mr. Newman and his wife, Edna Greening, later moved to Ash Fork, Arizona where he was employed as a telegraph operator by the Santa Fe Railway. Mr. Newman died on his birthday, August 20, in 1952 in Ash Fork. Both he and his wife are buried in the Williams, Arizona cemetery.
