Sample Autograph Signature: Earle R. Forrest

American journalist, historian, photographer, and author of books on the Old Southwest. Earle Robert Forrest (1883-1969) is best known nationally as the author or co-author of numerous books on the old southwestern U.S. He was born and spent most of his life in Washington, Pennsylvania where he worked as a reporter for his local newspaper, The Observer. His knowledge of the Southwest began when he worked for several years in the early 1900's as a cowboy on the CO Bar Ranch, north of Flagstaff, Arizona. Forrest returned to the Southwest many times in the following years, continuing his photography of the country and the people, particularly the Native Americans in the region. His first book about the Southwest, Missions and Pueblos of the Old Southwest was not published until 1929, although he was already well known locally as a historian due to his 3-volume History Of Washington County, Pennsylvania published in 1926. Forrest wrote numerous books on Washington County history, and served many years as the president of the Washington County Historical Society. A collection of western photographs appeared posthumously in 1970 as With a Camera in Old Navaholandand is still in print. The photographs themselves were donated to the Museum of Northern Arizona.
