Richard Carr
History
:

Richard Carr was born in Valentine, Nebraska at the end of the Great Depression and grew up on ranches on and around the Rosebud Reservation in South Dakota. Except for a short hiatus to earn an engineering degree and start a family, he spent much of his life working cattle. His research into the experiences of his grandfather, John E. Carr, led to The World’s Largest Roundup, 1902. Carr lives in Phoenix with his wife, Mary.
