We bought Sheep Creek Ranch. I am an archaeologist / historian blessed to be working for a private land owner who is very passionate about his ranch. Have no fear, the history of this enigmatic Dowd, and his legacy is being sifted through. Boren, you are loquacious, and I look forward to interviewing you, but doubt has been cast on your Dowd collection, so I have been forced to create a section on Empirical Data on Dowd, which is replicable, and that which I am only able to cite Boren's articles. Those articles are very well written, and I wont immediately cast them adrift..., but I am forced in the eyes of academia to stratify historic references by my ability to support them with other sources. Anybody who wishes to help me with my research, which will equate to a dissertation on steroids, is welcome.
