Special Collections University of Utah Marriott Library Salt Lake City, Utah 2001 CONTENT AND SCOPE This collection consists of 100 4X5" copy prints, with accompanying negatives. The copy prints were taken from a leather-bound photograph album belonging to Mrs. Fred Kemp of Morgan, Utah, a granddaughter of Parley Galloway, son of Nathaniel Galloway. The album had obviously been presented to Nathaniel Galloway by Julius Stone, leader of the 1909 expedition, as a gift. The photographs were taken by the expeditions' photographer, Raymond Cogswell, who was Stone's brother-in-law. Cogswell took almost 2,000 images in the course of the three-month long journey, and obviously selected out those that he thought Galloway would want. Mrs. Kemp contacted the Marriott Library Special Collections Department in 1997, and offered to allow the department to copy the images. This was accomplished within a short time and the original album was returned to the family. The numbers seen on the face of the prints are Raymond Cogswell's notations, and were used to put the images in numerical and down river order. The prints have been re-numbered in a continuous sequence. In cases where names of features have changed, the modern name is given in parentheses. In October, 2001, another descendant of Nathaniel Galloway, Mrs. Kay Neilson of Richfield, Utah, allowed the Special Collections Department to copy Galloway's original, hand-written diary that he had kept on the trip and that had been passed down to Eva Galloway, one of his daughters. This is now ACCN 1936. Even though the two collections came from different sources at different times, they compliment each other nicely to document this significant river expedition. HISTORY OF THE 1909 GALLOWAY-STONE EXPEDITIONNathaniel Galloway and Julius Stone, two men from widely varied backgrounds, became friends as a result of their involvement with Robert Brewster Stanto's Hoskaninni Mining Company in the last years of the 19th century. Galloway was a trapper and orchard-keeper from Vernal, Utah, who had in the previous decade developed a light, flat-bottomed skiff, as well as a revolutionary technique for using it, to successfully navigate the rapids of the Green and Colorado Rivers. In 1898, he was hired as a boatman and hunter by Stanton. Stone was an industrialist from Ohio who invested in the Hoskaninni Mining Company venture. When he was touring the site in Glen Canyon, he met Galloway and the two became friends. After his experiences in Glen Canyon, Stone was intrigued with the possibility of running the Green and Colorado Rivers in small boats. To learn more about it, he sought out Major John Wesley Powell in the latter's office in Washington, D.C, and interviewed other well-known river explorers such as Frederick Dellenbaugh and Robert Brewster Stanton. By 1909 the idea had crystalized to the point that Stone hired Galloway to travel to a boatyard in Illinois to supervise the construction of four boats. The boats were of the type later called AGalloway boats,@ a light, flat-bottomed skiff of lapstrake construction, about fourteen feel long, weighing about 400 pounds. Upon completion at a boatyard in Chicago, they were shipped to Green River, Wyoming, by rail. The party met in Green River, Wyoming, in the late summer of 1909, and started downriver on September 12. The party consisted of Galloway, who also served as the guide for the expedition; Stone; Stone's brother-in-law, Raymond Cogswell, who was a photographer; a friend of Stone's, C.C. Sharp, (who left the party at Hite, Utah, at the start of Glen Canyon); and Seymour Dubendorff, a young man of Galloway's acquaintance from Myton, Utah. Each man rowed his own boat, except for Cogswell, who needed to take photographs. Save for Galloway, who had been navigating the Green and Yampa Rivers for the previous decade, and had successfully run the same stretch of river, from Green River Wyoming to Needles, California, in 1896-97, none of the party had any experience running rapids. Despite this lack of skills, the party proceeded without any serious mishaps--save for a capsize in Cataract Canyon, and another in the Grand Canyon about mile 140, and a few minor scrapes and bumps--and reached Needles, California, on November 19, 1909. The expedition is generally considered by historians of the Colorado River to be the first that was undertaken purely for pleasure, similar to modern river runners. The rapid in the Grand Canyon where Dubendorff capsized was later named for him, with features in the immediate area named for other members of the party. Hence Dubenforff Rapid, Stone Creek, Galloway Canyon, and Cogswell Butte memorialize this expedition. The whole story of the trip was told by Stone in his book Canyon Country: The romance of a drop of water and a grain of sand (New York, London : G. P. Putnam's sons, 1932.) This volume includes over 300 of Cogswell's photographs. The voyage is also described in detail by David Lavender in his book River Runners of the Grand Canyon (Grand Canyon, Ariz. : Grand Canyon Natural History Association, c1985 INVENTOR Bx 1 Galloway-Stone Expedition Photographs, 1909 8 Fds Fd 1 Green River, Wyoming to Red Canyon 11 items 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.
