Lucia McCreery

Lucia McCreery is a great-granddaughter of William A. Richards. She has a Bachelor of Arts degree in history, was employed as a reporter, and is at work on a full biography of Richards and a compilation of his surveying diaries.

Through some of Wyoming’s roughest terrain in 1874, future Gov. William A. Richards surveyed the western boundary of the territory. Felling trees, clambering through canyons, dodging lightning bolts and watching mules flip from cliffs were only a few of the privations he and his party endured.
