Desmond, Lawrence

Lawrence G. Desmond ’57 writes: "The University of New Mexico Press has just informed me that my biography of the pioneering 19th century photographer and writer Alice Dixon Le Plongeon is now available from Amazon on Kindle. The title of the book is Yucatan Through Her Eyes: Alice Dixon Le Plongeon, Writer and Expeditionary Photographer. It's gotten rave reviews. Alice left London in 1873 at age 22, and spent the next 11 years in the jungles of Yucatan and Belize photographing, exploring, and writing about the ancient Maya. Hope you like it. And, if you are interested in Coast Guard rescues, lighthouses, and some funny stories, I just published a memoir: Blue Water and Rocky Lights: My Life in the U.S. Coast Guard, 1957–1960. It includes a chapter on Fr. Bernard R. Hubbard, S.J., who convinced me to join the Coast Guard when I was a senior, and is loaded with my photos of life on the ships, rescues, huge waves(!), and the St. George Reef lighthouse. The publisher is Blurb and you can preview it at:"
