I enjoyed reading about the two powerful women of Delta (DCI Sept. 12). Another woman I would like to know more about is Laura Gilpin the photographer and author.
Apparently in the years from 1911 to 1915 she and her family lived somewhere near Austin. She raised poultry there to support her photography. She later became famous for her southwestern landscapes and for her photographic studies of the Pueblo and Navajo Indians. If anyone knows anything about her time in Delta County, I would love to read about it.
