It is worth noting there are three men that are responsible for the vast majority of pictures taken during the early 20th century in the Imperial Valley.  They are; Harry Thomas Cory, Charles C. Pierce, and James D. Schuyler.  For pictures credited to H.T. Cory, it is possible he did not actually take all of the pictures.  He worked for the Southern Pacific Railroad as an engineer and may have possibly directed assistants to take the actual pictures (There is no documentation of this, but given his role and status during the period that the Imperial Valley was flooding, it seems likely that he had assistants to help him document the events.)
