How To Use This Site

This blog was updated on a daily basis for about two years, with those daily entries ceasing on December 31, 2013. The blog is still active, however, and we hope that people stopping in, who find something lacking, will add to the daily entries.

The blog still receives new posts as well, but now it receives them on items of Wyoming history. That has always been a feature of the blog, but Wyoming's history is rich and there are many items that are not fully covered here, if covered at all. Over time, we hope to remedy that.

You can obtain an entire month's listings by hitting on the appropriate month below, or an individual day by hitting on that calendar date.

We hope you enjoy this site.

And the train robberies come to an end.

William Carlyle, the robber, gave himself up rather than resort to violence.  Probably more misdirected than anything, he converted to Catholicism while in the penitentiary and became a model citizen.

1943  John Osborne, Wyoming's governor from 1893 to 1895, died.

1944 Jim Geringer born.  Geringer, a mechanical engineer who was also a Wheatland farmer, was Governor from 1995 to 2003.

1973  Inyan Kara added to the National Registry of Historic Places.
