Wyoming to Publish Buffalo Bill Papers

Wyoming has funded a new project to publish the papers--all of the papers--of Buffalo Bill Cody. Cody was best known for his Wild Wild West show, but he was a Pony Express rider, a Union scout during the Civil War and Buffalo hunter as the railroad made its way across the continent. The project is set to illuminate the life of Wyoming's most recognizable figure:

"This project is important because it — at long last, finally — provides funding for a level of research that's equal to its subject and the importance of that subject in Wyoming and its history," said Milward Simpson, director of the Wyoming Department of State Parks and Cultural Resources, which is in charge of administering the state money for the project.*

Thanks to Russell Davis for the heads-up.
