About The Book
Albuquerque Remembered is an informative and entertaining history of « The Duke City. » Under the flags of Spain, Mexico, the United States, and for a brief period, the Confederate States, Albuquerque grew from a small farm and ranch village in the northern reaches of New Spain to the thirty-fifth largest city in the United States.
Howard Bryan devotes special attention to some of the colorful characters who have populated the city’s history, and also includes business and civic leaders who helped shape the city’s growth and character. Humorous episodes and anecdotes, as related in early newspapers, are scattered throughout the text to balance some of the dramatic and often violent events that occurred in Albuquerque over the years.
« Mayo E. Hickey, superintendent of schools from 1898 to 1902, reported to the Board of Education in 1900 that he had administered twelve whippings, most of them for violations of his strict rule against smoking on school properties. He admitted with some embarrassment, however, that two of his victims had been whipped by mistake.
« When two young men were seen lighting up cigarettes at the edge of the high school grounds at Third and Lead, some teachers grabbed them and rushed them to Hickey’s office where they were both paddled. Only then was it learned that the two were not students, or even Albuquerque residents, but passengers on a Santa Fe Railway train that had paused for a lunch break at the depot a few blocks away. Out for a short walk to stretch their legs, they picked the wrong place to light up. » — from Albuquerque Remembered
