About the Photos

Most of the photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs, 20 to 200 megabytes in size) from the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) Many were digitized by LOC contractors using a Sinar studio back. They are adjusted by your webmaster for contrast and color in Photoshop before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here.

1927 - Coyote Ugly

1927 - Coyote Ugly

Family member Milo Woods shows off some coyote pelts in rural Nebraska.

Wily coyote

While growing up in Wyoming my sister and I often stayed with our aunt and uncle during the summer. On one of these visits, sometime during WW2, we drove past a huge pile (it seemed as big as our car) of coyote carcasses, shot by a local rancher. Uou could smell them for a mile. Now sixty years later and in California with coyotes nightly roaming through our yard and neighborhood I think that the wily coyote will be in North America long after we are gone.
