Scope and Content

The Skelton Cave photographs consist images taken of the cave and its surroundings by
William Patrick McCulloch in 1923. McCulloch ran a photo studio in Phoenix during the
1910s and 1920s. The materials were donated to the museum in June of 1999 for the
purpose of reproduction by Robert W. Shamhart.
