Norman Walker

Norman Walker Articles

These are articles by, or about, my great-uncle, Norman Walker, from the early years of the 20th century, most of which deal with the Mexican Revolution. They have been transcribed from various American newspapers in which they appeared.

Norman's son, John William Walker, has been enjoying reading these articles. We hope he'll provide some commentary of his own on his father's life. He told us that his Dad was working on a book called Juarezhell at one time and that his papers may have been in a foot locker which he left in the Hotel Linden in El Paso. They were supposed to have been turned over to the Texas College of Mines/Texas Western College/University of Texas at El Paso. I've contacted the library at UTEP, but they have no knowledge of Norman Walker.
