Anthony (Tony) Minerich (b. January 18, 1918, in Roslyn, Washington) spent several years working in local coal mines before he and his brother, Joe, enlisted in the army during World War II. After the war, Minerich moved back to Roslyn and resumed his work in the mines.
The cover image shows Roslyn, Washington, circa 1940. By the 1930s Roslyn's business district (left) was providing services for few people as coal mining operations decreased. Located above Roslyn, the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church (center) was built in 1887. The pine-covered Cle Elum Ridge is visible in the background, north of Roslyn.
