Description
Harry Miller (1879-1952), also known as "Indian" or "Two Guns" is most famously remembered for being the namesake of the ghost town Two Guns located on Interstate 40 east of Flagstaff. Miller was an amateur archaeologist and believed that he had discovered the “real” route of Coronado and the Seven Cities of Cibola in the Lupton area. He died in 1952. This collection consists of bulletins and publications Miller sent to Southwest Museum director F. W. Hodge in the late 1940s, articles collected by Library staff about Miller, and copies of his Songs of the Navajo Sea. Materials are dated 1947-1951.
