Noon–1 p.m.

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

For this talk Bob welcomes special guests Al and Pete Simpson, who help him share great stories and photographs about Old Timers and Early Day Women of the Cody area. These three have strong ties to the area going back many years. They know a tale or two about the old timers that have left their mark on Cody and beyond.

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 monthly throughout the year.

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.
