Saw this today on the Victoria Advocate online:

Cowboys topic of lecture

Former Smithsonian Institute curator and historian Lonn Taylor will deliver a lecture Thursday at the Cuero State Bank community room in Cuero.

The lecture is "My Love is a Rider: America's Affair with the Cowboy"

"In brief, my lecture is about how the cowboy became an American national hero, how he went from being an ordinary working man who tended cattle for a living to being a hero in a national morality play, the epitome of everything good in American life," Taylor wrote in an e-mail.


The presentation, sponsored by the Chisholm Trail Heritage Museum, begins at 6 p.m., said museum chairman Robert Oliver.
