(1929-2003)

Margaret took over leadership of the newly formed National Cowgirl Hall of Fame in 1976, expanding the Hall’s focus to honor all Western women and changing the name of the center to the National Cowgirl Hall of Fame and Western Heritage Center. Raised on a West Texas ranch (“growing up Western,” as she called it), Margaret believed women should be recognized for their influence on Western culture. With her involvement, the Hall expanded and received national recognition.
