Richard Gillilian Specialist on Desert Dust-


Richard (known as Gill) Gillilian first became interested in Desert Dust as a young boy growing up in Carbon County when he saw Verne Wood’s “Desert Dust” photograph displayed on restaurant walls and menus, sold from post card racks and hung in hotel lobbies around Wyoming.  He obtained a print of the photograph about 30 years ago and the quest to learn more about its history began.  For the past 12 years, he has actively collected Desert Dust related information and memorabilia.

 “The deeper I got into the subject, the more interesting it became.  Most of the jobs I have had as an adult require investigative skills, so this has just grown into a busman’s holiday.  The Desert Dust story is very complicated and diversified.  Since the events happened nearly 70 years ago, many of the true facts had been lost or misinterpreted.”

 

Richard says he is at the point in his research, where he wants to share the information he has obtained with others who may also be interested in Desert Dust’s history.

 

Richard will share his knowledge and screen the historic movies: “Fight of the Wild Stallions” and “Explorers of the Purple Sage” on Friday October 12th, at 6:30 PM at the Little Snake River Museum in Savery Wyoming.
