At the Buffalo Bill Historical Center, research by staff, visiting scholars, and interested visitors is an important part of what we do.
The McCracken Research Library is a specialized library and archives within the Buffalo Bill Historical Center in Cody, Wyoming.
The Historical Center and the Papers project are working jointly with the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in creating the William F. Cody Archive, an invaluable record of late nineteenth and early-twentieth-century American national development.
Each year, the Buffalo Bill Historical Center offers a limited number of research stipends to bring promising and established visiting western scholars. Using our resources, scholars study, write, and develop ideas and manuscripts that expand the horizon of western studies.
