Acquisition Information :
The materials in the Cowboy Poetry Poster Collection date from 1983 to the present. Because the Fife Folklore Archives is the repository of a large collection of cowboy poetry books, many gatherings and groups/publishers on cowboy poetry give posters regarding this genre to the FFA. In April 2006, Randy Williams pulled all the posters together and created this collection.Processing Note :
