The Donald C. & Elizabeth M. Dickinson Research Center of the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum shared the following information in July, 2002:

Help Preserve Today's Cowboy Poetry for Posterity

The National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum feels that Cowboy Poetry represents a genre that makes a significant statement on the nature of the American West. With this thought in mind, we are attempting to contact Cowboy Poets from across the West to help us preserve this important aspect of our heritage for future generations.

We invite all Cowboy Poets to send us copies of their published or unpublished works, CDs, tapes, or other materials related to their Cowboy Poetry. Additionally, we would appreciate a short biographical sketch of your involvement with Cowboy Poetry, to include when you started writing, what inspired you to begin, when and where you have performed, etc. This biographical information would be useful to the project even if you have no published examples of your work.

This project represents the ongoing efforts of the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum to preserve the many aspects of the culture of the American West so that those in the future will not lose elements of their heritage.  All materials will be deposited in the Dickinson Research Center at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum for the use of researchers and others who might have reason to use it in the years to come.

Please send your materials to:

Chuck Rand
Research Center Director
Dickinson Research Center
National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum
1700 NE 63rd St.
Oklahoma City, OK 73111

Dr. Bobby Weaver is representing the Center in this endeavor, so for more information, persons should contact him at (405) 503-6547 or by email.
