Consists of a short biographical essay written by W.H. "Leroy" Purdy, an early-day settler in Rio Blanco County, Colorado. Born in Pennsylvania in 1874, Purdy's family came to Colorado in 1882, settling in Grand Junction for a time before moving again to Palisade. As a young man Purdy became an operator for the Mountain Telephone and Telegraph Company, and at the time of writing in 1934 had worked 29 years at the firm. Much of the material in this essay consists of Purdy's recollections of President Theodore Roosevelt's hunting trip to the Meeker region in 1902, and his memories of hunting a large bear in Mesa County in 1898.
Description: 3 pages ; 28 cm
