What a joy it has been to learn more about the fascinating history of El Paso, Texas. I have learned about every day people wanting to make life better for them and their children and in the process helping to create a town fit for family and business. Thanks to Ms. Vise, English professor at Northwest Campus, for the research assignment to learn about the history of El Paso. I appreciate her confidence in me to assist in the job of putting together this feature magazine. I would like to thank the wonderful librarians at the Downtown Public Library in the Southwest Collection. Barbara Rees, Curator of the El Paso Historical Society, helped me immensely in obtaining photos for these articles This has been a great experience.
