Description: John W.: My father was operating a general store at Guam, which is just…. this side of Gallup. Guam was quite a trading center back in 1909 and 1910. That was the end of the railroad, and the logging trains came out to Zuni Mountain to hit the main line there, so there was a good deal of train activity. My mother came in on the train to Albuquerk [Albuquerque, New Mexico], when I was born. As I tell people, there are two great things that happened in 1912: statehood, and I arrived. (laughter)
