Author Don Bullis at Sandoval County Historical Society

Sunday April 5 at 2pm at Sandoval County Historical Society
Don Bullis to talk about New Mexico's Politicians in History
Author and historian Don Bullis will make a presentation at the Sandoval County Historical Society on Sunday April 5 at 2pm on New Mexico and Politicians of the Past.
The presentation is Free and Open to the Public. All are welcome.
Bullis is the author of the new book "New Mexico & Politicians of the Past" which was published by Rio Grande Books in collaboration with Albuquerque Westerners with funding support from the New Mexico State Department of Cultural Affairs as part of the celebration of the State's Centennial.
The meeting will be at the DeLavy House in Bernalillo, New Mexico (between Santa Ana Star Casino and Coronado State Monument on the northside of US 550).
New Mexico Politicians of the Past Reviewed by Reading New Mexico
"Author Don Bullis is well known for the depth of his knowledge and research regarding New Mexico history, law enforcement, and politics. In New Mexico & Politicians of the Past, he gathers together some of the state’s lesser known politicos and provides a short vignette of each man’s life (there are no women included in this collection, which is more likely due to the fact that women were not allowed to be part of politics in the past and not a case of the author’s chauvinism). The period represented is from the 1500s to the early 20th century.
Bullis made some rather interesting choices as to who was included in the book. Several of the snippets, such as those which relate farcical political fiascos and shady associations, are quite entertaining. Many give the reader a glimpse into a past era where garnering political position based purely on return favors and personal relationships was the norm.
For those who are truly addicted to New Mexico’s political history, this book will certainly be entertaining. It cannot be argued that Bullis knows his history and has done extensive research. I, for one, however, would have liked the selection of biographies to be just a bit more stimulating and exciting."
