Photograph, Walter S. MacRae
Walter S. MacRae at a ranch in northern Arizona. MacRae is standing in front of a barn leaning against a fence. To his right are two cats perched on the fence. MacRae, who wrote frequently to President John F. Kennedy, sent the photograph with a letter dated March 4, 1963. The postscript for the letter is typewritten on the verso of the photograph and reads: "P/S Back in 1937 I took care of a small ranch for a party in northern Arizona. I just came across this picture. Years ago this had been quite a famous "spread" and Tom Mix was a cow-boy here. Notice my cats on the fence rail? At nine P.M. the train would whistle five miles in the valley. And the coyotes would start to howl, too. I was there all by myself and loved it. Mac."
