A map drawn by Maggie (Hitt) Dalby, age 14 from Collyer, Kansas, showing creeks, a school, the Union Pacific Railroad, the town of Collyer and the outpost of Coyote in Township 12 South, Range 25 West, Trego County. Maggie also includes a short essay about the history of Collyer and the Coyote Post Office. This is one of several maps drawn by school children for a contest organized by Judge J. C. Ruppenthal of Russell, Kansas. The maps were to meet a "requirement of presenting historical data, together with excellence and accuracy of drawing." With this submission, she won the second prize of $2 in the map contest of 1909.
