Editorial Reviews

Review

''Lucinda Sachs has done all of us who love New Mexico, and anyone interested in our state's history, a great favor by bringing Clyde Tingley back into the public eye. He was a fascinating figure and deserves the renewed attention.'' --Jeff Bingaman, United States Senator

''Sachs has uncovered archival records, and spoken with many who knew the Tingleys, and has gathered it all in this historic volume, including comprehensive notes, an exhaustive bibliography, and a hundred vintage photos. Sachs' book is a valuable addition to the political and cultural history of New Mexico. --John J. Hunt, Albuquerque Journal, 29 December 2013

Very interesting book about an important, zany New Mexico personality. My grandfather knew him, so I was excited to get this new biography. My only complaint is that I found the many punctuation, grammar and spelling errors in the text to be distracting (even in just the first two pages). However I would still recommend this book as part of any collection on New Mexico history.

Lucinda Sachs tells the story of Governor Clyde Tingley and the New Deal in New Mexico with great style, personality, and panache. In this book, Sachs does more than revive the long forgotten history of New Mexico in the thirties she brings it roaring back to life with fascinating details and wonderfully personal interviews. She deftly illustrates that Clyde Tingley, while certainly entertaining was more than his long remembered malapropisms might suggest, just as Carrie Tingley was more than her long remembered collection of hats. Yet this is no stodgy tome, Ms. Sachs’s writing is injected with great humor, warmth, and insight for these characters, reminding us that while Tingley may seem but a footnote in the history of New Mexico his role was pivotal, he was relied on by a great many, and deserves credit for making it the Land of Enchantment. Sachs reminds us that before Tingley, the schools and highways were in disrepair and there was no such thing as bureau of tourism. A weighty revelation considering that tourism is one of the largest industries for the state today and has been for many years. She also brings to light that while Clyde and Carrie Tingley were practical and savvy, they possessed a great love for the state and her people. Though decades have passed since their death, this can be seen even today in the beloved Carrie Tingley Children’s Hospital. For those who wish to know more about the history of New Mexico during the depression, Lucinda Sachs opens a window to a very colorful past and illuminates many of the states most prominent political figures. She takes them off the shelf, shakes off the dust, and reveals that they were more than caricatures; they were living breathing people that made the state what it is today.

Brilliant....Incisive! This book is a window into New Mexico politics of the time, and an intimate look at one of New Mexico's most colorful governors. The book is a must read for the seriously interested reader of the New Mexico Depression Era. The book presents a detailed study of Tingley's early life in Ohio, his role in the development of Albuquerque as city mayor and political boss, and later as governor.

Folks who love Albuquerque and New Mexico and the banter of politics will enjoy this warm account of an influential leader and his, perhaps, even more influential wife. Newcomers and oldtimers who remember listening in person to the mayor will chuckle at some of the tales that reveal how things get done. There are a few places where I skipped the details, but that is to be expected when reading of political lives. This book is extremely well documented and scholarly and reinforced by the fact the author makes herself available for personable presentations, clarifications, and gathering of new stories. The photos add to an understanding of the times and make the book interesting. The text helps unravel history of New Mexico in a time that was difficult for all the nation and describes decisions that the reader can see impact life today.
