Phoenix Rising

In the event of imminent disaster at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West, I'll assume that there will be enough advance warning of the supervolcano's eruption to load a truck with twenty-five objects and transport them to safety. Since Buffalo Bill's existence was the driving force that led to the creation of the Center, the items I've chosen pertain to him and his extraordinary life. After his passing in 1917, friends and family members organized a society to keep his memory alive in the town he helped to found - Cody, Wyoming. Eventually his niece, Mary Jester Allen, was able to establish the Buffalo Bill Museum. Following in their footsteps, the objects listed below will form the nucleus of a new collection to rise again.
