April 23, 1964: An eyewitness account of the first exploration of New Mexico after it became part of the United States will be published today by the University of Oklahoma Press. “Navajo Expedition” is the account of young Lt. James Harvey Simpson, of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, who led the mapping and exploring expedition into the territory following the Mexican War. Lt. Simpson’s expedition, besides making the topographical survey, also investigated Indian pueblos, and made a peace treaty with the warring Navajos. Until the publication by the University of Oklahoma Press the journal was available only as a Senate Executive Document.
