Editorial in the Evening Tribune 1929 - “M.P. Stamm is dead after nearly a half century’s residence in Albuquerque. As a young man Mr. Stamm could see the mesa dotted with homes and parks and tree-lined avenues. The things Mr. Stamm saw decades ago have come to pass…. We are prone to say that such pioneers had faith which reared the city. That is but partly true. That conclusion assigns to them merely the role of prophet, waiting patiently for their dreams to become realities. The pioneers like Mr. Stamm did not rely solely on an abstract faith that Albuquerque would grow. They pitched in and made it grow. Theirs was the toil and the risk that turned vision into actuality.”
