Alfred Armstrong Beaty

January 1913 - Doc moved to Borego Valley near San Diego. His exploits are described by Phil Brigandi in The Journal of San Diego History, Winter 1997, Volume 43, Number 1, "A Place Called Borego, Homesteader Days in the Borrego Valley"

"Beaty's Ice Box" is in Borrego State Park. When the trail to Highway 99 was built through the desert in 1929, there was a Base Camp here, and a cool cave served as a natural ice-box. Alford Armstrong ("Old Doc") Beaty was an early homesteader and promoter of the road. The cave was washed away but the name remains for the Canyon. ~ Parker, p. 33.
