I'll be adding more of his reports as often as possible. If you would like to comment, send email to the editor at histgaz@gmail.com. We're interested in hearing from you especially if you've been to Eastern Oregon, the Wallowas, the Blues, or if you know of Prof. Lindgren and his trips to the many other gold camps in the West. These stories are available to our electronic readers as part of our contribution to the information available on the Internet. --Keith Whittle, editor
