Bob’s free talk will look at “Cody to Yellowstone over the past 150 years,” the Center states. “In exploring the history of Yellowstone as the Park has matured over all that time, he shares many early day photos—by his father Jack Richard, his uncle Ned Frost, and several of his own. The Frost and Richard families have been involved in Yellowstone for more than 138 of those 150 years,” the Center says.

The Center’s McCracken Research Library hosts and coordinates the Local Lore series, holding talks on the third Thursday of each month. Coming up, the presentation on August 18th explores the “scenic East Entrance Road to Yellowstone.”

Bob Richard has spent his life as a Wyoming resident and his varied experience draws on the deep traditions of the West. Richard has worked on guest ranches and guided horse/hunting trips, and he has worked in ranching for almost 37 years. Further, he has “owned and operated Grub Steak Expeditions,” where he has personally taken thousands of visitors on tours through Yellowstone.

Receiving his education at the Universities of Wyoming, Arizona, and California (Fresno), Richard has been employed as a teacher and school administrator. Richard was a decorated United States Marine Corps pilot in Vietnam and for 21 years he helped coordinate the American Red Cross service and relief activities in the western United States.
