Robert J. Ege was a writer and author who lived at 1904 2nd Ave. N. in Great Falls and 50 years ago helped start an organization called “Little Bighorn Associates, Inc.”
“We study the life and times of George Armstrong Custer and the Battle of the Little Bighorn,” said Bill Blake of Woodstock, Ga., the group’s current chairman. “The vast majority of our members are very passionate about Custer. In fact, I think there are some of us within the organization that are still fighting the battle.”
Ege, who died here in 1977 and was cremated, was among the handful who started the group and for a time wrote its newsletters. Bruce Liddic, who has belonged to the organization for nearly 50 years, knew the Great Falls man well.
