Wayne Ludwig is a history buff, budding author and newspaper journalist.  He is one of the museum's resident historians and early development planner of the museum's community garden and outdoor learning programs.  Wayne stated that his full-length presentation on the topic of the Chisholm trail is too complicated to cover within one thirty-minute session.  At the Symposium, his presentation will focus briefly on the trails' purpose, the effect of westward migration on the cattle trails and the controversy surrounding the network of cattle trails that eventually entered the public perception as the Chisholm Trail.  Wayne and his wife Martha reside in Fort Worth, Texas.

 

 

Les Sweeney was raised on a large cattle ranch in north central Nevada, near Midas, during the 1940s & 50s.  He has a degree from the College of Agriculture at the University of Nevada, Reno.  In 1990, after 31 years he retired from the Department of the Interior (BLM) and he and his wife purchased a small ranch near Midvale, Idaho.  At that time, he began and continues researching and writing a book titled ONLY ONE SURVIVED, the true story of a lone survivor of an Indian family that was massacred near Golconda, Nevada in 1911.  The Sweeney's retired from the ranch in 2003 and moved to Payette, Idaho.  Les has also researched and written short stories on old ranch histories, Indian engagements and short biographies on old time buckaroos/cowboys; those include: Albino (Tez) Tais, a Yaqui Indian, Henry Harris, a black cowboy and Isadore (Lolo)Munoz, the last of the old Spanish Vaqueros.

Richard S. Robinson, also known as "Rich" is the Museum Coordinator for the National Multicultural Western Heritage Museum. For the past 12 years, Richard has been responsible for securing historical artifacts, supervising volunteers, and organizing displays. He has also facilitated projects, museum workshops, receptions, group tours, storytelling, annual events, and forums. Richard has contributed to the management and organization of activities hosted by the museum including the annual rodeo and the Hall of Fame ceremony.  Richard has a passion for speaking about the history and diversity of western culture. He has been a featured speaker at numerous events, where he told stories of cowboys, cowgirls and overcoming the struggles of the West.  Richard has a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) degree from the University of Phoenix and currently works as the night manager for Tom Thumb. He has been married for 23 years to Patricia Robinson and is the father of three children.  "My middle name is 'Shane', after the Alan Ladd movie 1953. My father believed in the heroic cowboy."
