The Cover

The figures in this Picture represent Bat Masterson, left, and Wyatt Earp, obviously ready for action. The late Randy Steffen, Texas artist and author, did the original portrait in pencil and tempera from photographs and descriptions of the two lawmen. The sketch was made at the request of Gary Roberts, now of Norman, Okla., to honor Nyle H. Miller, long-time managing editor of the Quarterly and executive director of the Kansas Historical Society, at his retirement last year. It is published here through the of Roberts, Miller, and Steffen's widow, Dorothy A. Steffen.
