Historical NoteReturn to Top

The Stock Association of Laramie County was organized in Cheyenne, Wyoming Territory, in 1872 to combat cattle rustlers operating in the area. By 1879, it had been renamed the Wyoming Stock Growers Association and was involved in a broad range of activities, including managing roundups, conducting brand inspections, and dealing with health and sanitary concerns, freight rates, and fencing and other public domain issues. The Association was instrumental in the development of Wyoming livestock and rangeland laws beginning in the 1880s and was closely involved in the Johnson County War of 1892. A women's auxiliary, Wyoming's Cow-Belles, was organized in 1940 and a youth group, the Junior Wyoming Stock Growers Association, was founded in 1954.

The Wyoming Stock Growers Association traces its origin to 1872 when five cattlemen met in a livery stable in Cheyenne to organize a vigilance committee to cope with rustlers operating in the area. This meeting was the beginning of the Stock Association of Laramie County.

The open range system made it difficult for a rancher to watch over his cattle and, consequently, encouraged rustling. In 1875 the Stock Association members agreed to assess themselves to pay detectives to discourage rustlers. The following year Association members approached the Laramie County Commissioners with a request for assistance with the payment of stock detectives. The Commissioners granted them $150 a month for two months. The Association appointed a committee in 1877 to engage detectives to work on behalf of Association members.

In 1879 the organization's name was changed to the Wyoming Stock Growers Association and an executive committee was appointed to supervise inspectors, oversee Association business and represent the Association in the state legislature. The Association invited other stock associations to join in "one compact organization" to "enforce the stock laws of Wyoming Territory." The response to this invitation was quickly accepted by stock associations in Wyoming and surrounding states, and for many years the Wyoming Stock Growers Association was the primary source of protection for the interests and property of cattlemen in the region.

Providing leadership in cattle industry, the Association dealt with roundups, inspections, health and sanitary concerns, freight rates, fencing and other public domain issues, as well as rustling. The Association persuaded the Territorial Legislature of 1882 to empower the Governor to appoint a State Veterinarian and to institute stock laws which would prevent the introduction of disease on Wyoming ranges. In addition, during the presidency of John B. Kendrick who appointed the first historical committee, the Association began collecting historical data and artifacts related to the accomplishments of the Wyoming Stock Growers Association and the development of the western cattle industry.

Blizzards during the winter of 1886-1887 resulted in overwhelming losses of cattle which drove many of the large cattle operations into bankruptcy. This hard winter, combined with the economic depression of 1886, wrought sweeping and permanent changes in the western cattle industry and drastically reduced the Association's membership. Despite overwhelming obstacles, the Wyoming Stock Growers Association managed to remain intact and to continue to work tirelessly on behalf of its members.

The Johnson County Invasion of 1892 had a devastating impact on the Association. Under the leadership of W. C. Irvine the Association was able to recover and gradually increase its membership and expand its influence.

The Association was recognized by the federal government, during the 1920s, as an official marketing agency under the Packers and Stock Yards Administration. President J. Elmer Brock and Executive Secretary and Chief Inspector Russell B. Thorp provided the leadership which kept the Association afloat during the Great Depression of the 1930s. It was during this period that the Wyoming Stock Growers Association and the Wyoming Wool Growers set aside past animosities and aligned to address the common problems of taxation, shipping rates, and public domain issues. In 1937 the Association worked to unify brand inspection agencies, livestock exchanges, and independent commission firms and arrive at a uniform system to enforce brand inspection rules and agreements.

During the 1940s the Association, on behalf of its membership, strongly opposed the "Jackson Hole Seizure" or creation of the Grand Teton National Park. The Association also worked to encourage the application of principles of the Taylor Grazing Act to parts of public domain under the control of the Forest Service and supported legislation to permit all grazing lands except national parks, monuments, and timber lands to be returned to private ownership.

In more recent years the Wyoming Stock Growers Association has worked cooperatively with the Forest Service for range improvement and the establishment of multiple use objectives. Although methods have changed, rustling continues to be a problem, and the Association continues to work to apprehend and prosecute cattle thieves. The Wyoming Cow Belles, an auxiliary of the Wyoming Stock Growers Association, have provided invaluable service in the promotion of the beef industry. Currently, the Wyoming Stock Growers Association continues its work in the promotion of legislation beneficial to the cattle industry and the protection of its members' interests and property.

Content DescriptionReturn to Top

WSGA materials include correspondence (1870-1944); administrative records including minutes, legal documents, correspondence, membership records, committee records, and annual convention records (1874-1985); financial records (1874-1982); brand books, roundup records and inspection and shipping records (1868-1978); Wyoming's Cow-Belles records and correspondence (1940-1972); Junior Wyoming Stock Growers Association records (1954-1973); WSGA publications including the periodical "Cow Country"; photographs (1857-1981); an oil painting commemorating the founding of the WSGA; and artifacts.

Papers of two WSGA executive secretaries, Thomas Sturgis (1881-1898) and Russell Thorp (1860-1968), contain correspondence, photographs, subject files, scrapbooks, speeches and miscellaneous other materials.

Collection also includes Cheyenne Club correspondence, membership records, financial records and other materials (1880-1947); Johnson County War materials, including correspondence, articles, and journals (1891-1939); American National Cattlemen's Association materials, chiefly printed (1905-1974); and subject files related to the western livestock industry and Wyoming and western history; and periodicals related to the livestock industry.

The Wyoming Stock Growers Association Collection 1858-1987 includes correspondence, financial records, photographs, news clippings, subject and research files, administrative records, inspection and shipping records, maps, posters, periodicals and artifacts related to the activities of the Association and the history of the western cattle industry.

The correspondence files are an especially valuable historical resource for understanding many of the social, economic and political factors which influenced the development of the livestock industry in Wyoming and other western states. The inspectors' monthly reports for 1886-1887 in Series IV give a vivid and exciting description of the dangers and difficulties encountered by WSGA inspectors and stock detectives who worked to protect the property interests of WSGA members. The business of the Association was of such great importance to its members that I.H. Pratt wrote from Port Said, Egypt, to give his proxy to William C. Irvine rather than miss the opportunity to vote on issues of importance to the Association. This letter may be found in Series I, Subseries II.

The brand books and brand registry in Series IV are useful for tracing the history and ownership of particular brands. The brand book belonging to Mike Shonsey contains interesting notes about the death of the famous guide and mountain man Jim Bridger.

The records from the legendary Cheyenne Club provide a unique perspective on the lifestyles and activities of many of Wyoming's wealthy "Cattle Barons." The supply orders and account books verify that the Club's members enjoyed luxuries and a life of sumptuous elegance which would have astonished the average plains rancher.

Subject files contained in Series XIII provide a wealth of information on a variety of topics including blacklists, stock detectives, cattle thieves, outlaws, pioneers, blizzards, historic trails and sites, stock raising, cowboy lore, public domain, and ranches.

Three small collections, the Thomas Sturgis Papers, the Russell Thorp Papers, and the Jerry Whitman Papers, have great relevance to the Wyoming Stock Growers Association and have been integrated into the collection. Thomas Sturgis and Russell Thorp both held the office of Executive Secretary in the Association and were notable for the scope of their dedication and service to the Association and the live stock industry. The Whitman Papers contain photographs, scrapbooks, correspondence and legal documents belonging to Russell Thorp, as well as some artifacts and miscellaneous documents dealing with the Cheyenne and Black Hills Stage Line owned and operated by Thorp's father.

Information in the collection regarding the Johnson County Invasion and the Tom Horn case is sparse. The information available in the collection on these topics may be located in Series IX and Series XIII.

In a more contemporary vein, the proceedings of the WSGA Annual Convention and the articles in Cow Country magazine document issues of interest and concern to members of the cattle industry throughout the twentieth century.

This collection is of value to historians, ranchers, members of the live stock industry, and students of western Americana.

Acquisition Information

Acquisition Information

The Wyoming Stock Growers Association Records were given to the American Heritage Center by Wyoming Stock Growers Association Executive Secretary Russell B. Thorp in 1944, with additional material being donated in later years. Although most of the documents are in good condition, some of the letterbooks are fragile and faded. Whenever possible original folder titles have been retained. The material has been arranged chronologically within each series. The Russell Thorp Papers, the Thomas Sturgis Papers and the Jerry Whitman Papers have been integrated into the Wyoming Stock Growers Association Collection because of the direct association of their material with the Wyoming Stock Growers Association. Both Thomas Sturgis and Russell Thorp served as executive secretary of the Wyoming Stock Growers Association and Thorp also acted as chief inspector. The Thorp and Whitman papers make up a separate series as do the Sturgis papers. Four cubic feet of printed material have been separated from the collection, and twelve cubic feet of books were transferred to the rare books library.

Series XVIII.:  Historical Photographs, 1868-1964Return to Top

When the Wyoming Stock Growers Association Records were organized in 1994 some of the material which had been first received by the American Heritage Center was located in vertical files. This material was not included in the 1994 finding aid. An attempt has now been made to repatriate the material from the vertical files back to the collection. However, due to the size and complexity of the Wyoming Stock Growers Association records, no attempt has been made at this time to interfile this older material with the rest of the collection.

The photographs in this section primarily consist of prints which were received from the WSGA prior to 1953. They were, therefore, received before the photographs listed in the main finding aid. They were organized topically, but it is unknown whether they were so organized by the WSGA office or by the American Heritage Center archivist. All of the photographs were assigned the number 38, but the significance of this number is unknown. This was followed by a letter and number combination: B1, C1, C4, C7, C10, C13, C16, E1, E2, J1, M1, O1, O2, P1, R1, R4, R5, S1, S4, and T1. The meaning of these codes can be inferred by the content of the photographs: B1 seems to refer to brands, C7 to cowboys, E1 and E2 to employees, J1 to Johnson County War, etc. In the finding aid, I have tried to follow this system generally, but not strictly. I have not been able to discern the difference between R1, R4, and R5, for instance, so I have lumped all these photographs together under Ranches and Roundups. I have also created sections for individual photographers who produced and sold their cowboy and ranch life images commercially. This was done for the convenience of researchers, since these images are often widely available elsewhere, but are often not attributed to the photographer.

Some of the photographs are grouped according to the person or family who originally donated them to the WSGA. This is the case with the Crain and Sturgis photographs. The Russell Thorp collection, however, is more complicated. Thorp was a WSGA officer and, apparently, curator of the photographs when they were in WSGA hands. At one time material received by the American Heritage Center from Russell Thorp was assigned a different number (#128). However, it was determined that Thorp's donations and the WSGA records so overlapped that it made sense to absorb the Thorp collection into the larger WSGA collection. That is also the case with these photographs. Most seem logically to belong to the topical sub-groups, and so they have been placed there. A few, which are personal to Thorp and the Thorp family, comprise a separate sub-group called the Russell Thorp photographs.

Series XIX.:  History Materials, 1873-1980Return to Top

When the Wyoming Stock Growers Association (WSGA) Records were organized in 1994 some of the material which had been received by the American Heritage Center was located in vertical files. This material was not included in the 1994 finding aid. An attempt has now been made to repatriate the material from the vertical files back to the collection. However, due to the size and complexity of the Wyoming Stock Growers Association Records, no attempt has been made at this time to interfile this material with the rest of the collection, except in the case of oversize materials, which have been placed in Boxes 245 and 246.

The materials in this section were primarily received between 1949 and 1964. They are similar in nature to the Miscellaneous Documents listed in the main finding aid, having been apparently collected by the WSGA office to illustrate Wyoming history in general and the cattle industry in particular. Some items, which were originally accessioned under the name of Russell Thorp as Accession Number 128, have been integrated with this material. It seems probable that Thorp initiated the collecting of much of this historical material, and that he intended it all to be a part of the WSGA record. The documents are arranged as they were in the vertical files of the American Heritage Center in two series: biographical and subject. There is little evidence to indicate their original arrangement by the WSGA.

The documents consist of both printed and unpublished materials and include correspondence, manuscripts, news clippings, pamphlets, etc. containing reminiscences of and about residents and conditions in Wyoming and the West primarily before the turn of the twentieth century.
