W. B. Clark, 1961. Understand this booklet has been published several times, but is now out of print ---

Again, if anyone has a copy and is willing to scan and send to me by email, the pages that read, "“...many others including George W. Myers, early day buffalo hunter, sheepman and lawyer...”?

Will pay for your time, and give you credit in a yet unpublished book...

Thanks for your help.

Now, as to the promoters of this fair and race meet--it was under the auspices of the Custer County Horse Sales and Fair Association, as previously mentioned, and among the incorporators of this association were such names as William Harmon, prominent livestock man and banker; Jep Ryan, stockman and hardwareman and once Mayor of Miles City; Herman Orschel, proprietor of the clothing store later known as Orschels and known to every cowboy in Eastern Montana; George W. Allerton, insurance man and secretary of the association; Julius Basinski, merchant; C. E. Brown, the iceman; Hi Astle, who operated a livery stable; T. J. Thompson, one-time deputy game warden, and affectionately known among his friends as "Dead Eye" Thompson; Sam Gordon, publisher of the Yellowstone Journal; John M. Holt, prominent stockman; W. D. "Billie" Smith, stock inspector and detective; and many others including George W. Myers, early day buffalo hunter, sheepman and lawyer; S. A. Pepper, a liquor dealer who lived at 911 Bridge Street and kept in the corral at the rear of these premises several of the prettiest Shetland ponies ever to travel the streets of the town.
