Remarks: In his book, Myrick (see bibliography, above) wrote that Mr. Trost had made estimates for various buildings for the Ray Copper Mines, Ltd. These were rejected by Reginald W. Truman, manager of the Ray properties. He wrote in a letter to Selim Franklin, a Tucson attorney that He [Trost] has made plans for very much more elaborate buildings than are necessary for a mining camp. In any case, early in 1901 the Ray Copper Mines went into receivership. One investor in the firm was Albert Steinfeld, a Trost client in Tucson. It could not be determined from Myrick’s book what sort of buildings was planned. No other information on the project is available.
