Lowell Lindsay served as a US Navy helicopter pilot in the Vietnam theater and was a training officer for two years at the Navy survival school in Warner Springs, California. He is the past president of the San Diego Association of Geologists and has coauthored and edited several books, including Fossil Treasure of the Anza-Borrego Desert Region and Geology of Anza-Borrego: Edge of Creation. Together, Lowell and Diana wrote the first edition of The Anza-Borrego Desert Region, which was published by Wilderness Press in 1978. It has been "the bible" for anyone thinking about visiting the park for almost 40 years. Diana Lindsay is the author, coauthor, or editor of more than 10 books that delve into the cultural and natural history of primarily the desert region of San Diego County. Her research and writing career began with the publication of her master's thesis from San Diego State University by Copley Books in 1973 as Our Historic Desert: The Story of Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. She is the recipient of numerous awards for her work in support of Anza-Borrego Desert State Park.
