Welcome to the Buffalo Bill Museum in
we received a donation from Mike Wolfe of "American
Pickers". It is Iron-Eyes Cody's Tee Pee. He
was an Italian actor who portrayed an Indian in many
Westerns, including John Wayne. He also was known as the
crying Indian from the TV commercial to save the
environment. The show also did a good tribute to Cecil
Fletcher who was friends with the actor and we have a
display dedicated to him as well. Cecil was a local
musician who wrote a song about LeClaire and had it
copyrighted so we have an official city song. Not too
many towns can boost that. We also sell his music.
Thank You to everyone who was involved in making the 8th
Annual John Boesch Memorial golf tournament such a
success and especially all the businesses that donated
prizes. We hope to see everyone next year!
