Curator Conversations: Chuck Wagon Chuck: History vs. Mythology

May 10, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:15 pm

Follow the invention of the chuck box and the chuck wagon from Charles Goodnight in the mid-1860s to the chuck wagon’s use on ranches in the American West today. Learn who the cooks were who sometimes — intentionally or not — spoiled the broth, er, beans, on the trail and on the ranch, and who were their assistants. Discover if what cowboys ate off the back of a wagon is what we think it was! $5; free for Museum members.  Click Here to Register.

Michael Grauer, McCasland Chair of Cowboy Culture & Curator of Cowboy Collections and Western Art
