A free talk by Bob Richard

Thursday, December 21, 2023
Noon–1 p.m.

Join us for the December presentation of 2023 in our “Local Lore with Bob Richard” series of free talks hosted by our McCracken Research Library.

For this talk Bob shares stories and photographs from throughout the history of Pahaska Teepee, the hunting lodge William F. “Buffalo Bill” Cody’s built just outside the East Entrance of Yellowstone National Park at the turn of the 20th century.

With a wealth of knowledge about the Cody and Yellowstone National Park areas, Bob has a lifetime of stories to share with future generations. The “Local Lore with Bob Richard” series continues every other month throughout the year. Most talks take place on the third Thursday of the month, with the exception of June (second Thursday).

The talks in this series are gathered in this YouTube playlist.

About the speaker

A lifelong Wyoming resident, Richard’s varied experiences are pure West. He worked at guest ranches, guided horse and hunting trips, ranched, and for 37 years owned and operated Grub Steak Expeditions, personally touring thousands of visitors from around the world through Yellowstone and its ecosystem.

Educated at the Universities of Wyoming, Arizona, and California (Fresno), Richard has served as a teacher and school administrator, a decorated United States Marine Corps pilot in Vietnam, and, for 21 years, helped coordinate American Red Cross service and relief activities in the western United States.

Richard is the author of several books on the Cody and Yellowstone area, as well as his own family’s deep roots in the region. They feature his own photographs and often those of his father Jack Richard and uncle Ned Frost. For information on Bob’s photography and his published books, visit bobrichardphotography.com.
