Photograph Collection

The Museum’s historic photograph collection includes more than 25,000 images that document the 20th century cattle industry. Originally published in the Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association’s The Cattleman magazine, these images constitute a visual record of the continuities and changes in the cattle industry during the last century. The Cattleman collection includes images by such noted photographers as Erwin E. Smith and Frank Reeves.

Many of these photographs can be viewed at The Portal to Texas History website made possible through our partnership with The University of North Texas Libraries.
