Herb Marsh is the head of the Nora Johnson Henn Foundation and past president of the Lincoln County Historical Society
Nora True Henn was a forty-year resident of Lincoln,NM, and was known as the first lady of Lincoln County history. Authors who wrote about Billy the Kidd or the Lincoln County War would always come first to Lincoln and visit with Nora. The breadth and depth of her knowledge of Lincoln's turbulent past was unequal. There wasn't anything about the subject she had not researched with ultimate effort and committed to memory or writing.
Henn accumulated an extensive archive of Lincoln County history that was the envy of all. Before her death in 2011, she created the Henn Johnson Library and Local History Archives Foundation to care for her archives located in Lincoln. It is a research facility for serious research of Lincoln County history. She penned this manuscript from her own life-long research.
Our presenter, Herb Marsh, is a former El Paso attorney and district judge. He attended law school at University of Texas. An avid historian, he now lives in Lincoln. He is currently the president of the Nora Johnson Henn Foundation and past president of the Lincoln County Historical Society.
