Bill Miesse is a publisher, lecturer, and bookseller specializing in Western American art and history. He is currently working on a lexicon of English connective phrases which will be published as a reference thesaurus for thinkers and writers.
In the late 1980s Bill researched and collected dozens of historical paintings of Mount Shasta which are now in the collection of the Redding Museum of Art and History. Many of the images in The Significance of Mount Shasta as a Visual Resource in 19th and Early 20th Century California were photographed by Bill Miesse and Kate Bauer while the paintings were still part of his original collection.
Bill contributed his book The Significance of Mount Shasta as a Visual Resource in 19th and Early 20th Century California for the art section of the project. He also wrote Mount Shasta: An Annotated Bibliography and updated the database with hundreds more entries. He wrote the history section, contributed to the literature section, and scanned his collection of slides for the project.
