Book Talk by Amanda Davis

The genealogy section of the library is a wonderful resource for books dealing with the history of New Mexico and the “Images of America” series in particular are a great mix of historical research and photographs of different points in time from around the state.

Colfax County, Silver City, Lincoln, Las Vegas, Belen and Grants-Milan are just a few of the locations covered by local historians. The authors have done a lot work in compiling information on the important locals and sites of these locations and in identifying historical photos from the area. The photographs that are included in these books are great quality for being so old and give an exciting glimpse into what these places used to look like. Even if you’re not looking for specific people or buildings located in these books, they are a neat read to take you into the history of New Mexico and see how its people lived in the past.

A few other books in these series delve into more specific topics. “New Mexico State Police” by Ronald Taylor has official photographs of officers who have served New Mexico from as far back as 1933 (that’s when a motor patrol for New Mexico was first established), as well as candid pictures from training and events, images of the different vehicles and motorcycles that have been used, badges, patches, and even fun ones like two officers riding on a bicycle built for two!

For information on interesting buildings around the state, there’s “Santa Fe’s Historic Hotels” by Paul R. Secord and “Sanatoriums of New Mexico” by Richard Melzer. “Sanatoriums” is of particular interest as it shows photos from the time of the tuberculosis outbreak with pictures of the doctors, nurses and patients that inhabited these places. “Albuquerque’s Huning Castle Neighborhoods” by Jane Mahoney has a lot of information on the historic districts of Albuquerque and the people that lived there.

Though the genealogy books don’t check out of the library, they can be supplemented with additional materials from the southwest nonfiction area of the library to provide a rich tapestry of New Mexico’s diverse and fascinating history.
