Alla en “El Ranchito” Grande

My personal connection to the Pecos high country.

 

By

Arthur Scott

   A bit about me; I was born in 1938 in Santa Fe. My grandfather and father were also both born in Santa Fe as were my children. I lived in Santa Fe from 1938 through 1976 (with some time out for the military) when a promotion and a divorce from my first wife led me to the Washington DC area. Retirement from the USGS led my second wife and I to Florida. My grandfather, Arthur Seligman, was at times on various Territorial Councils, president and a founder of The First National bank in Santa Fe, Mayor of Santa Fe and Governor of New Mexico from 1930 to 1933 when he died in office. My father, Otis Seligman, died in 1943 when I was 5. My mother remarried a few years later to Burl Scott and was subsequently divorced.  My surname was changed at that time by my mother to Scott.

   My summers from the time I was born were spent in our cabin in the upper Cow Creek. My father purchased 5 or 10 acres from Guillermo Varela in the late 20's. They, along with some labor from Pecos, built a log cabin that originally had one bedroom with another added later
