I suppose Miller and Snell were good for their day, in my opinion. Nonetheless, when I was taking my own hard look at Dodge City it really surprised me - given their reputation - when I found more than a few men who wore badges at Dodge completely overlook by Miller and Snell. It was simply a matter of them not looking where they should have automatically looked.

You wanna talk Gary Roberts? Briefly, unlike Miller and Snell, he would leave no stone unturned. The word 'posterity' comes to mind. Perhaps the full extent of his body of work will not be realized because of that.

As a neophyte I would stand there and stare for a minute This is where, and how I found the major piece on W. L. Brooks.
Sitting in a cabinet waiting for me. It was there for the taking (copying) for anybody.
I'm sure this is called posterity; something committed by the unselfish; a place at which I have yet to arrive.

If I was to send you a copy, you would be amazed at how deep Roberts can go.
