Phyllis and Weldon Heald were freelance writers who relocated to southeast Arizona from the northeast. Much of their writing was on the flora and fauna of the Southwest as well as historical sites in Arizona. Before his career as a writer, artist and photographer, Weldon worked as an architect. Weldon F. Heald (1901-1967), internationally known conservationist, published over 650 articles in outdoor magazines, including "Arizona Highways," "National Parks Magazine," and "Pacific Discovery." Heald served as vice president of the American Alpine Club and director of the Sierra Club. Heald Peak in Arizona was named after him and dedicated in 1974. Heald, who had a background in climatology, geography and cartography, drew the map of the Palisade Glacier, Sierra Nevada, California, published by the American Alpine Club circa 1946. (#166126).
