    Cover Photos: Legend1. Frank The Boss Pinkley - Pinkley , the first superintendent of the Southwest National Monuments got his start working as caretaker of the ruins at Casa Grande in 1901 under the jurisdiction of the General Lands Office. When Casa Grande was designated a national monument in 1918, the fledgling National Park Service offered Pinkley the job as resident custodian, with the expectation that he would also take charge of Tumacacori National Monument and several other monuments. In 1924 when the Southwestern National Monuments Office was formed, Pinkley found himself as superintendent in charge of 14 monuments, and by the time of his death in 1940, Pinkley was supervising 27 national monuments in four states throughout the American Southwest. NPS Historic Photo Collection, George A. Grant, 1934

    2. Fort Union - Tourists at the ruins of Fort Union, 1932. Fort Union was established in 1851 to guard the Santa Fe Trail, was abandoned by 1892, and was designated a National Monument on April 5, 1956.

    3. Casa Grande - Visitors to the Great House at Casa Grande, c. 1890s. Recognition of the need to preserve Casa Grande may date back to the 1860s, but it was not until 1889 that Congress acted to enable the Secretary of the Interior to repair and protect the site. The site was designated a National Monument in 1906. The first roof was built over the structure in 1903, and the current roof (see photo, page 19) was constructed in 1932.

    4. Montezuma Castle - Custodian Earl Jackson showing Montezuma Castle to a visitor, c. 1940s. Montezuma Castle was the third National Monument to be declared after the passage of the Antiquities Act in 1906.

    5. Bandelier - Talus House (under construction in this photo) was reconstructed in 1920. Similar talus houses, built from rock debris at the bottom of the cliff, used to be in front of the other cavates at Bandelier.

    6. Tumacacori - The Mission San Jos de Tumaccori as it looked c. 1907. The park was established just one year later in 1908.7. Mesa Verde - Spring House being documented by the Civilian Conservation Corps in 1935. Mesa Verde was designated a National Park in 1906.
