Re: “Riches and Division

Hello. Thank you for writing this book! I just received it from Amazon (we live in Chicagoland), and I'm looking forward to reading it. I noticed the Yaqui Village Baptist Mission photo on page 100, also shown above in this article. I didn't see her name in the caption, but the lady on the left is Mrs Dolores Urias Wright (1886-1968), superintendent of the community center. Her husband was the Fred Wright of Wrightstown Road and one-time school, out east where they had a ranch early on. Mr Wright died fairly young in 1923; but Dolores carried on until 1968, dedicated to the First Baptist Church and community work. Her name appears several times in Tucson newspapers. She is shown, for example, as the Yaqui Mission superintendent on page 13 of the 6 Sep 1941 Daily Citizen. There is a newspaper obituary on page 29 of the 16 Jan 1968 Citizen with her photo; and a family obituary on the next page. Dolores Urias was a native Tucsonan of pioneer families, daughter of Antonio Urias (said to be Tucson's first jeweler) and Macaria Gallego. The Arizona Daily Star did a Street Smarts feature on Wrightstown Road with several photos at http://tinyurl.com/qfg3znc
