William F. Cody - from 1868-1872, Cody was employed as a scout by the United States Army. Part of the time he scouted for Indians. At other times, he hunted and killed bison to supply the Army and the Kansas Pacific Railroad. In January 1872, Cody was a scout for Grand Duke Alexei Alexandrovich of Russia's highly publicized royal hunt.
H.H. Tammen and Buffalo Bill Cody on the Kansas City station platform in 1913. Possibly it relates to the deal made for the Col. to be featured with the Sells-Floto Circus for the next few seasons. This would be comparable with the engagement of Tim Mix with the Floto Show fifteen years later.
