Young captured every facet of the building of his city in photos, and circulated these widely around the U.S. This photo appeared in his "Hollywood Reporter" dated May 1, 1921.

    Dr. Mickelson,

    I would very much like to attend your slide talk but am currently out of country and will not be returning until later that week. I hope to make it to one of your future presentations. I am very much enjoying your book.

    Best of luck!

    Kind Regards,
