Early Bisbee (Images of America)

by Annie Graeme Larkin (Author), Douglas L. Graeme (Author), Richard W. Graeme IV (Author)

 

Before Bisbee became a bustling mining camp, it was a haven to Native Americans for centuries. However, their presence brought the intrusion of army scouts and prospectors into the Mule Mountains. The coincidental discovery of vast mineral wealth at the future site of Bisbee permanently affixed the fate of the land forever. Rising from the remote desert was a dynamic mining city, a city that grew into one of the most influential communities in the West. Bisbee was unique in the Old West because of the mixed moral values. High society and the decadent underworld lived in a delicate balance, but a vibrant multicultural community was forged from these social fires.

Bisbee (Postcard History)

by Annie Graeme Larkin (Author)

 

Visually, the Bisbee of today remains a community frozen in time, with Main Street retaining its character from 1910. The discovery of copper deposits in the Mule Mountains brought forth a wealth that enabled a substantial community. Profitable mining ventures and a need for labor drew thousands of miners from around the world to work in Bisbee. These individuals added a distinct flavor to the area. Like countless other Western mining camps, Bisbee evolved from a rough frontier community surviving disastrous fires and floods into a town with a substantial population and solid foundation. Bisbees seemingly inexhaustible mineral wealth resulted in the community becoming a center of economic and political power in an emerging territory on its way to statehood. It was Arizonas greatest copper camp.

Glossary of Mining and Mining Related Terms as used at Bisbee, Arizona

by Richard W Graeme III (Author), Douglas L Graeme (Author), Richard W Graeme IV (Author)

 

 Every occupation has its own, often distinct, terminology and mining is no exception. While many of the terms were used throughout the U. S. mining industry of the time, their use at Bisbee may have varied, perhaps substantially, as it was common for words to evolve in meaning at a locality to reflect the actual application.
Following is a glossary of the mining and mining related terms as used at Bisbee over the years. In some instances, Spanish terms have been included in the English section as they were an important part of the vocabulary of the mineworkers,irrespective of ethnicity or primary language. A separate section with the majority of the commonly used Spanish terms follows the English section for easy reference.

Forgotten Caves of Bisbee, Arizona: A Review of the History and Genesis of These Unique Features

Forgotten Caves of Bisbee, Arizona: A Review of the History and Genesis of These Unique Features

by Richard William Graeme III, Richard William Graeme IV, Douglas L. Graeme

 

During the last part of the 19th century miners at the booming mining camp at Bisbee in the Arizona Territory began finding natural caves. These caverns were more than the typical calcite and aragonite filled openings stained by iron and manganese oxides. These caverns contained substantial amounts of malachite, azurite, rosasite and even cuprite. As a result the caverns were at times the formations were colored in deep greens and blues. It was learned that these caves formed as the result of the sugergene (oxidation) alteration of sulfides. The book begins with the history of local cave discoveries and then becomes more technical as it examines the speleology and mineralogy.

Collecting Arizona: State of Mines, Legacy of Minerals 1st Edition

by Tony L. Potucek (Author), Les Presmyk (Author), Richard Graeme (Author), Terry C. Wallace (Editor), Jeffrey A. Scovil (Illustrator), Jesse La Plante (Illustrator)

From its earliest days as a territory when prospectors searched for gold and silver to the giant copper camps of the twentieth century to today when Tucson is a mecca for mineral collectors worldwide, the historical fabric of Arizona is woven with minerals. The book endeavors to provide a sense of the people, places, and times that spawned the state's mineral discoveries. It begins with a geologic overview, but the story is more a history than a scientific treatise and is divided into chapters, each covering a distinct era beginning with the pre-Territorial period when missionaries, soldiers, and prospectors made the earliest inroads into the uncharted Pimería Alta, which would become southern Arizona. Collecting Arizona is a Centennial tribute to the state's legacy of mineral specimens; to those who spent time digging, documenting, and preserving that legacy; and to the great State of Arizona, which is built on its minerals and its mines.

Mineralogical Record Magazine "Bisbee [Arizona] Revisited":

Bisbee: Urban Outpost on the Frontier

by Carlos A. Schwantes (Editor)    

 

Situated near the Mexican border in southeastern Arizona, the city of Bisbee gained prominence as a mining center around the turn of the century and by 1981 had produced almost eight billion pounds of copper. This large-format, illustrated volume focuses on the boom years of 1880 to 1920 within the broader context of western mining history and shows how, despite its isolation, Bisbee was influenced by regional, national, and even international forces.
