Achievement 3: Image Unlocked!
The photograph in the upper left is of John A. Rockfellow, and was taken in 1933. Rockfellow came west from New York state in the 1870s, and prospected in southern Arizona for several years. Eventually he homesteaded in the Cochise Stronghold near Willcox in 1883 and formed the NY Ranch with several partners. Rockfellow was also a surveyor and mapmaker, and an early engineering professor at the University of Arizona. He wrote a book about his experiences, entitled Log of an Arizona Trail Blazer, in 1933.
