The University of New Mexico has published online three research papers that might be of interest to people researching southern New Mexico, or what some of us like to call the Rio Abajo. All three books can be found in UNM's Lobo Vault.

Delay after Delay and Finally,
Statehood at Last!
New Mexico's statehood was delayed for many reasons in the territorial period, 1850-1912 and this presentation will focus on five of the main reasons for the frustrating delay. Political cartoons from the last decade of the struggle will help illustrate New Mexico's troubles in Washington and in the court of public opinion. The presentation will end with a discussion of how these five main obstacles were overcome by 1910, thus allowing New Mexico to finally achieve statehood in 1912.
Richard Melzer is a professor at the University of New Mexico Valencia campus and is the author or editor of numerous books and literally hundreds of articles on New Mexico history. His most recent works are: New Mexico – Celebrating the Land of Enchantment, History of New Mexico Since Statehood, and Sunshine and Shadows in New Mexico’s Past. We are grateful to Richard for agreeing to wrap up this series of programs celebrating the Centennial.
