Tim Kimball


Donaciano and Juan Bautista Vigil, Curas Antonio Jose Martinez, Ramon Ortiz, Jose Manuel Gallegos and Jose Leyva, Vicario Juan Felipe Ortiz, Colonels Diego Juan Archuleta, Pablo Montolla and Manuel Cortez, Francisco Sarracino, Ramon Luna, Manuel Alvarez, Albino Chacon, brother and sister Trinidad and Gertrudes Barcelo, and Juan de Jesus Maese shared a love of New Mexico. 

Traditional history emphasizes the differences between these patriots and their alleged failings.  They and their conciudadanos were admirable men and women with much in common, sharing many goals but taking different paths.  These Hispanic leaders provided continuity in governance and established a viable American (but distinctive) New Mexico in a stormy sea of jingoism, racism, and antebellum national politics. 

Tim Kimball is an amateur historian and Army-trained intelligence analyst with a 1967-68 tour in RVN.  He received an M.A. in Anthropology from the University of New Mexico, is literate in Spanish and German.  Kimball has a special interest in archival research on occupation-era New Mexico and its application to a more complete interpretation of the period.  He lives in Corrales with his wife Nancy.
