Jeremy Rowe’s investigative skills are being applied to more than his pursuits as a researcher and learning resources specialist in the School of Computing, Informatics, and Decision Systems Engineering, one of ASU’s Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering.

He’s using his talents to help document Arizona history through his studies and collections of historic photographs and other images.

He aids museums, documentary projects and television shows in telling the story of the Southwest by researching and writing about historic photographs, illustrations and other visual records.

The Arizona Republic recently reported on an exhibit of photographs selected from Rowe’s collection of some 30,000 images – some dating back to about 150 years ago. See the link below.
