John W. Meeker

John W. Meeker's interpretation of how Sun City evolved based on actual history and his memory of events that occurred. Very detailed, including numerous pictures which are dated and described. There are two notebooks, volume 1 and volume 2. Contains reference material. Care needs to be taken looking through notebook. Notebook is so thick that paper gets caught on metal binder rings and paper is tearing. Deed of gift by Suzanne Meeker Jones on 9/19/01.
