Thanks for sharing. For further reading I highly recommend Diana Lindsays "Marshall South and the Ghost mountian chronicles 321 pages and photos. Marshall South interviewed many characters and old timers who lived in the Borrego and Coachella valley. He was very philosophical.
"Man struggles to grow beyond the primitive, and once obtains all, he seeks the primitive in his leisure"

The Marshal South collection is now on exhibit at the BARC Library in Borrego Springs. Many of the photographs that will be on display I printed from original glass plate negatives that were given to Diana by Rider South. The exhibit will also have many original items from the homestead.

Beginning in January, there will be a series of talks and field trips related to Marshal South. Many of his artifacts, paintings, jewelry, photographs, sculptures, and pottery will be on display this desert season at the Begole Archaeological Research Center in Anza-Borrego Desert State Park – open to the public on Tuesdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and on special occasions.

Thanks for the info Daren.
Here is the book I am reading. Loaded with tons of ABDSP factoids covering the 1940's and earlier.

Great article about the "Lost Emerald mine of Rock house valley"

Thanks for sharing this event, I sure wish I could make it out there on a Friday afternoon...or a Tuesday before 2, for that matter. Such a fascinating man and topic. So glad I got to hear Rider speak in person a few years ago at the Escondido Library, where he signed a copy of Diana's book for me. Also whenever I'm in Julian I ask to see the murals that Marshall painted in various buildings there, including the basement of the Town Hall.

Many of Marshal's paintings will be on display, I recognized many of them from Diana's book...I won't be able to make the event either but felt honored and privileged to have been asked to make prints from those very old and fragile glass plate negatives, many dated back to the early 1900's.
