Another Image: Crook

I dug this up recently for a gun scholar and to refresh my memory. General Crook, famed in the Indian wars in the southwest, and a fair man, was also an amateur but serious ornithologist, and poses here with a "lifter" Parker, so combining at LEAST three blog themes.

General Crook, in the early 50s was featured on the back of a cereal box, and in advertisements in LOOK magazine, and the inspiration to Paul Horgan in his novel DISTANT TRUMPET. With all that in mind, I stopped by the General Crook House Museum in Omaha once, well worth the time.
