History is important to our family. My father, Dr. Watson Parker, is one of the most thoughtful Western historians of his time, having written several engaging books regarding mining and the culture of the Black Hills mining era. His Black Hills Ghost Towns and Others, with considerable help from Hugh Lambert, is a oft-printed classic.

My mother, Olga Glassman Parker, an able historian in her own right, has spent many hours compiling a personal history of her family, as well as assisting Dad in his endeavors.

If you're interested in Black Hills history or in the history of Palmer Gulch Lodge, the Palmer Gulch Historical Society pages provide much lore.

Other relevant topics here include my own personal work, which includes a body of work spanning more than twenty years. It includes my work as an advertising and interactive professional, and work as a cinematographer and director. You can also view my resume in HTML format.
