The Papers of William F. Cody - A Digital Edition

Preparation of a thematic, illustrated digital edition of the papers of Buffalo Bill Cody, a symbol of the American West in the popular imagination. (24 months)

At the dawn of the age of celebrity in the late nineteenth century, the public persona that William F. Cody created in his thirty years as head of the touring show, Buffalo Bill's Wild West, was central to a durable and vivid mythic vision of the vanishing American frontier. In the American public imagination, William F. Cody had become to many the embodiment of American promise and American virtue. The Buffalo Bill Historical Center will develop a digital edition of The Papers of William F. Cody containing material gathered from multiple repositories and organized into three thematic modules. The goal of The Papers of William F. Cody is to collect, edit, and publish online an open-access, keyword-searchable, digital edition that covers the period from William F. Cody's birth in 1846 to his death in 1917.
