C. F. "Buffalo" Jones' herd

C. F. "Buffalo" Jones' herd
Date: 1885-1899
A photograph showing buffalo and cattalo on the ranch of C.J. (Buffalo) Jones, about four miles southeast of Garden City, Kansas.

He captured a number of calves and brought them back to his Garden City ranch where he bred them with cattle. This early experiment with "cattalo," the name Jones used to advertise the new animal, ultimately failed because the species could not survive independently.

James R. Mead to his sister

James R. Mead to his sister
Creator: Mead, James R. (James Richard), b. 1836
Date: December 25, 1859
James R. Mead writes this letter from his home "somewhere in the West." He has a trading post about twenty miles north of the Saline River and west of Fort Riley, Kansas Territory. He describes in detail the abundance of wildlife, calling western Kansas the "Land of Plenty." Mead and his business partners trade with the Kaw Indians, mostly for furs. His first impression of this tribe was unfavorable, but in his later years he came to respect the Kaw and believed that they were an honest people. He also mentions the Copperhead Indians, who were more fierce and warlike than the Kaw. Mead and his companions are building a blockhouse in case there is trouble. These typed copies of the James R. Mead's letters were donated to the Kansas State Historical Society by Mr. Mead's family in 1940 when the originals were still owned by the family. The originals are now held by Wichita State University.
