Our “Cowboy of the Year” is Colonel Tim McCoy. Known as Colonel Tim to millions, McCoy appeared in rodeos and Wild West shows all over the country for many years following his screen career, always projecting a good cowboy image to his fans. Tim McCoy also was a noted authority on American Indian history (1891-1978).
