Re: cravey /ruth

Well said, Don. :D anyway the "hrdlicka never rose above the level of mediocrity" quote was apparently made by a contemporary anthropologist during hrdlickas "peak period" .who this person was isnt mentioned. The guy’s name was Robert H. Lowie…he was a protégé and “on the team” o...

Re: cravey /ruth

Hi Don, If Hrdlicka ever said that the skull came from a 66 y/o man, we’d know right then and there that he was probably exaggerating what he was able to discern from a skull. So it would be significant. Based on actually reading and studying Hrdlicka’s work, I would be surprised if he really said h...

Re: cravey /ruth

Hi Don, First, no need to explain or apologize for being “argumentative”…it’s just discussion. You’re not going to offend me, I say keep it up. 8) Second, I see nothing presented so far, which would indicate Hrdlicka was unqualified to identify skeletal remains using anthropometry. Quite the opposit...

Jim hello i hope you are keeping well..i dont pretend to know anything about anthropometry ,other than what its used for...heres a short copy and paste printed in 2004..what is /was true in 2004 must have been equally true in 1931, "Anthropometry is the technical name for this preoccupation. I...

Re: cravey /ruth

Hi Don, I really do understand the skepticism surrounding Hrdlicka’s changing of his draft report. However, it’s not uncommon for a scientist to make an initial finding, only to “scale it back” as he further considers the problem. I think these changes only reflect a desire to arrive at the most sci...

Re: cravey /ruth

Don, Not sure if anyone has posted these before. I was curious as to what was in the newspapers at the time regarding Cravey's disappearance and the finding of his remains. I found that Tom K. had pretty much covered it all in his article that Garry linked to, but there are a few tidbits in the news...

Re: cravey /ruth

PS again: I was a bit confused as to where the references to different firearms were coming from. I was remembering the final part of Hrdlicka’s notarized affidavit where he refers to it only as a shot from a gun (changing it from “high-powered gun”). I went back and looked at the affidavit and saw ...

Re: cravey /ruth

Don, last summer a friend of mine was hiking down the road (in AZ) to get back to where his truck was parked…he stopped to lay down in some shade under a tree about 20ft. from the road. He just happened to be looking across the road when out of nowhere a tortoise fell out of the sky and ruptured on ...

R. O. Ackerman and the Grave Marker

Many firearms aficionados will recognize the name R. O. Ackerman. He was prolific in trade publications up until he passed away in 2000, specializing mostly in black powder and other antique firearms. He also published several pamphlets on black powder shooting and building muzzleloaders. He is ofte...

Hi Cuzzin Jack, good to see you posting again. :D If I may interject here, although from a position of considerable ignorance regarding mineralogy: I believe the point Thomas was making is that the presence of Te in the match-safe is pretty much irrelevant. At least that's how I read it. First, I be...

Section 16

Hello all, I know this has been discussed in the past, but I'm looking for any actual records pertaining to the ownership of the NW qtr of section 16 (the quarter section immediately to the west of Waltz). My grandmother lived on that section for many years, at 964 E. Cocopah... which is ~ 1000 yard...

Re: for gods sake

Hi Don, I think lots of people still check this site.

Re: Rendezvous

Hi Thomas, Hope all is well with you and yours. Being much more interested in the Bradshaws than I ever was in the Supes, it has always seemed to me that the Dutchman legend describes the events along Turkey Creek (and lower down in Black Canyon) in the early years of 1863/1864. Literally everything...

The instance you relate of Kino being involved in punishment may be misinterpreted. I believe Deducer posted a letter from Kino on T...

Re: Massacure

Hi Jack, Yes, the Jesuits would have had a separate transportation system if they were smuggling gold. Such a system is another thing I'm not convinced of, but I have done no research in that area so I'm pretty ignorant of what was or wasn't going on. There are people here who ARE well versed in the...

Jack, I for one certainly find it intriguing, it's obvious you've given this a great deal of thought. Not that I'm convinced that the Chinese were in the Supes, as it would have been far easier for the Jesuits to trade gold to the Chinese in the Philippines, and it would make sense that they would l...

He then gives 3 bucks back to the smelly prospectors, one of which unfortunately has no towel... So Sr. Peralta has 25 bucks in the tiller...Jake has 2 in his pocket......
