Cover caption: Sculptor Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney poses with The Scout, her portrait of William F. “Buffalo Bill” Cody. Courtesy of Buffalo Bill Center of the West, Cody, Wyoming, USA: P. 69.0517. In this issue of the Southwestern Historical Quarterly, historian Jacob W. Olmstead details the furor that erupted over the prominent placement of the statue at the Texas Centennial celebration in Dallas in 1936. The battles waged in newspaper editorials and the courtroom revealed some of the changing ways Texans identified themselves and their state in the early decades of the twentieth century.
