L.R.A. Condit Papers

L.R.A. Condit was born in Lawrenceburg, Iowa, in 1858. He came to Wyoming in the fall of 1885. He worked at several ranches in Northern Wyoming before finally establishing the Condit Ranch near Kaycee in Johnson County, Wyoming, in 1894. Condit served two terms as Johnson County Representative in the Wyoming House (1899-1903), and was the Republican nominee for Governor in 1918. He was married to Edna J. Ferris in 1900, and had four children.

The collection includes 9 boxes of correspondence (1860-1899), chiefly with family members, although some business letters are included. There are 25 financial ledgers (1878-1925), 280 photographic glass negatives, legal documents, pamphlets, newspaper clippings, notebooks, photos, drawings, and poetry. The collection also includes Condit’s photographic equipment.
