The original Hearst Free Library and Reading Rooms were presented as a gift to the citizens of Lead on Christmas Day, 1894 from Phoebe Apperson Hearst, noted philanthropist and wife of California Senator George Hearst, one of the Homestake Mine’s original owners. Following the Opera House fire in 1984, the library was moved into its current building. Of special interest are the extensive SD collection, the early-day foreign language collection and the Custer-Cartwright papers, dealing with the Battle of Little Big Horn. The facility also houses the George Hearst Research Room and the T.J. Grier Archival Vaults, home to an extensive collection of Lead and Homestake Mining Company documents.

If it walks like a duck, sounds like a duck, and looks like a duck ~ it is probably a goose.
I'm hunting images at the moment to pin down the people in the Charley Reynolds marker images. Slow going. Nye is in the Stone House images at Friends, I have a very poor one of Kuhlman and it is Brininstool sat on the marker base. It was difficult to confirm until I realised that the hat was a favorite he often wore. Ellison is proving to be elusive. You gave Dustin as at far right and I have no doubt you are correct. It's an important bunch of people who brought significant changes to todays battle.
