Re: The Legend of the Superstition Mountains

Jim,

Can't find anything you have written that I disagree with. For his time, Hrdlicka was the top dog.......as far as I have been able to tell. In that respect he had plenty of detractors as well. Pretty normal for people in his field. Everyone thought they were better.

Take care,

Joe

Re: The Legend of the Superstition Mountains

Joe, Yes id forgotten the discussion from way back. but the facts/non facts/questionable facts remain the same ,as you say "the next turn of the shovel" or "wiggle room" etc really proves the point...if hrdlicka himself couldnt be 100% sure ,then theres no way the rest of us can...

Re: The Legend of the Superstition Mountains

Damn those pesky details! :) Rereading the passage; “skulls with bullet holes found on battlefields”, I suddenly realized. I have been entertaining a. bad assumption from the beginning. I had always assumed that Dr. Hrdlicka was serving in some capacity during World War I and was physically present...

Re: The Legend of the Superstition Mountains

Jim,

A number of years ago I contacted the Smithsonian, as they have Hldlicka's notes. I have that information somewhere, but suggest you contact them and get copies of what you want. I don't know if I have the energy to look them up.

Good luck,

Joe

Re: The Legend of the Superstition Mountains

Guys,

I have mentioned before that the silver plate was not found. That story later changed, and I believe Brownie and Bill Barkley may have been involved in some way.

Good luck,

Jack,

Only one question.......Did Sim's Ely mention this as the place Ruth's body was found? Might have just been a mistake by Ely, but it's curious.

Hi Joe, From what Garry said in his last post, I took that to mean he was done talking about the Jones letters until his site was back up and people could get a clearer picture of everything in context. Not sure. As far as the PD, here is what I’ve found out so far from a friend: 1. The files proba...

Re: The Legend of the Superstition Mountains

Jim,

You might check around to see if anyone copied the information on Garry's site. Paul might have it, or Greg Davis. I just checked again and the site is still down. If anyone has the information, Garry should. It would be a terrible shame if it's all lost.

Good luck,
