The public is invited to view the
exhibit "Cowboys, Combines, and Small Towns” of Frontier Photographer F.M.
Steele at the Seward County Community College/Area Technical School Library.
F.M. Steele outfitted a buggy with photographic equipment and headed out from
Dodge City to photograph cowboys.
But soon after, the scope of his subject matter expanded to cover the
changing landscape of the Great Plains.
"Cowboys, Combines, and Small
Towns” documents cowboys, agriculture, construction, town life, and buildings,
along with portraits of people through Steele’s photography.
In addition to field photography, Steele had more
than a dozen studios in Kansas, Oklahoma, and Nebraska.
"Cowboys, Combines, and Small Towns of Frontier Photographer
F.M. Steele” was produced by the Kansas Humanities Council, Emporia State
University, and the Kansas Historical Society and is part of the Kansas
Interpretive Traveling Exhibits Service.
The exhibit is open to the public
