xv Acknowledgments I t would be impossible for me to recall and thank e very person and institution that contributed infor mation in the writing of this book. However, this does not mean that I appreciate all of their help and efforts any less. A short list of a few that have impressed themselves on my mind should suffice for my intents and purposes. In no particular order they are: The Montana Historical Society, Helena, Montana; the Nor th Central Nevada Historical Society Humboldt Museum, Winnemucca, Nevada. Pansilee Larson, the daughter of bank robber y witness Lee Case, greeted me at the door and w as full of infor mation concerning Butch and Sundance’s last robbery in the United States; the Northeastern Nevada Museum, Elko, Nevada, for allowing me access to their historic photo archives on a day they were officially closed to the pub lic; Phillips County Museum, Malta, Montana, with much infor mation on Kid Curry’s activities in the Little Rockies re gion; Mr. Winston Mitchell of Dodson, Montana, who guided me to the historic sites in and around Landusky , Montana, such as the graves of John Curry, Jim Winters, and Pike Landusky, Jim Thornhill’s barn, and the location of the real Kid Curry Hideaway in the Missouri Breaks; the Harlem Pub lic Library, Harlem , Montana; the Glenwood Springs (Colorado) Historical Society, that provided extremely valuable information from their “Kid Curry file,” particularly the Parachute train robbery and Curry’s death; the Nita Stewart Haley Memorial Library, Midland, Texas; Stella Brock of Hoofprints of the Past Museum, Kaycee, Wyoming, who provided much useful information concerning the history of the local ranching families; the Johnson County Library, Buffalo, Wyoming; the Milton Moffet family of Kaycee, Wyoming, for sharing their knowledge of the site and history of the Grigg homestead and post office; Sammye Vieh and her daughter Kristen of the Willow Creek Ranch (formerly the Kenneth McDonald ranch), Hole- in-the-Wall valley, Wyoming, who were gracious enough to guide me to the famous “V-notch” and other historical outlaw sites in the valley; the Jim Gatchell Memorial xvi Acknowledgments Museum, Buffalo, Wyoming; the John Jarvie Historic Site, Brown’s Park, Utah; the Tri-State Museum, Belle Fourche, South Dakota; the Carbon County Historical Society and Museum, Red Lodge, Montana ; the Crook County Museum, Sundance, Wyoming; and the Seattle Public Library and the w onderful Inter-Library Loan service, that provided many valuable and hard-to-get sources. It would be remiss not to thank all of the historians, writers, and researchers who have come before me, and those w ho are continuing to generously impart the fruits of their research for the benefi t of others. As an example, I relied heavily on the research of Sylvia Lynch, Wayne Kindred, and Brown Waller for the chapters on Kid Cur ry’s Nashville and Knoxville period. I should note that tw o chapters, those entitled “The Man from Pik e County, MO” and “Pay Back,” were previously published in part in the NOLA (National Association for Outla w and La wman History, Inc.) Quarterly 31, no. 1 (Jan.– Mar. 2007) for an article entitled “The Death of Pike Landusky.” Finally, I would like to sincerely thank my family and friends w ho believed in me and gave me encouragement in the writing of this book. ...
