Four Photographs of Cowboy Earl Forrest (WEC104)
This is a collection of four photos of relating to Earl Forrest. Three of them are of Mr. Forrest. The last one is of a bunch of Cattle. All of them are identified as being taken from Tarkiv Mt in 1900. Earle Robert Forrest (1883-1969) was born on June 20, 1883, in Washington, Pennsylvania. After graduating from high school, he took three years off from studying and spent some of that time at his uncle’s farm in Missouri; his encounter with cowboys there instilled in Forrest a desire to travel to the western United States. From 1902 to 1907, Forrest spent his summers and autumns working on various cow camps and ranches throughout the western United States, including Montana, California, and Arizona.
