Hi Lynn,

Hope you are doing well. No, I do not know of anything recent on Death Valley Scotty. He seems like one of those figures who has not retained his fame as the years passed. When I was a kid, there were many references to him, but I cannot recall hearing any in years, outside of our history groups.

In a way, the same has happened to Buffalo Bill. How often do we hear anything about him now? Even in the 1960s and 70s, almost anyone would have know who he was. There is even a football team named after him, and I doubt most folks would know why.

Of course, we live in a time where there is probably less general interest in history than at any time in the past.
