    Do you have any info or photos of Truman’s visit to Casper in the ’50s? My sister and I shook his hand on the Tarmac at the airport when he arrived and we don’t have any pictures of it. Thanks.

    My great grandfather was a fixture in Douglas, Converse County in the early 1900s with a construction company called Gilbert Brothers. They provided the infrastructure through railroad and road construction to Wyoming during the oil boom and the transition to automobiles. Do you have any reference suggestions or photographs?

  3. Hi,

    I wonder if you can help me.

    I’m writing/editing an epic novel – Alias Jeannie Delaney – the life story of a devastating cowgirl who’s the fastest gun in the west. Much of the story takes place on the Laramie Plains in Wyoming, on the ranch my protagonist grows up on. I need to know details about fall roundups, cattle drives and the shipping of cattle during the mid 1870s.

    I’ve looked up some of the facts, that ranches in the district co-operated with other ranches in roundups, and that Albany County organised it’s first official roundup in 1877. Cowboys from all the ranches rounded up all the cattle – I dont think wire fencing had been introduced yet – identified their own brand (how?) branded them, then, I presume, drove them to be sold and shipped east either from Laramie or Cheyenne.

    Can you clear up some of this for me? I’d be very grateful for any information. Thank you so much.
