This is a work in progress
to compile as comprehensive as possible a listing numbers and titles of individual
Powell and A. H. Thompson
stereographs of Arizona from the Powell Expeditions.If you have examples that
are not on this list, or valiant titles for any of the numbers or captions
I would appreciate hearing from you. Ideally I would like to obtain either
a xerox copy or scan for my files as well. Thanks in advance for your time
