We are happy to announce the release of “My Book: Richard Fenner Burges’ Personal Diary, 1891-1898,” an El Paso County Historical Society publication.
In the diary, written during his late teens and early twenties, Burges recounts his life in the far west Texas town of El Paso shortly after his arrival from Seguin. As El Paso enters its formative years, Burges does too, and he views the rapid development of the city with insight and wit befitting a man of such wisdom.
