Looking for information about Raymond Brooks a mining engineer.
Born about 1880 in Illinois, Father from Connecticut, Mother from New York. [No names on either as yet]
He was in Montana [Cook City area] in 1905, Nevada 1906-10 [Goldfield census 1910 - wife Margurite Ferguson, Wisconsin], and other Nevada, Idaho and Colorado mines later. He consulted in developing the Belgian Congo Copper Mines in the mid-late 1920's and had a home in Norwalk, CT about 1930.
I'd like additional biographical information [schooling, positions, descendents] to make a small biography of him for a web page dealing with his photography of the mines and areas.
Thanks for any help!
