Scope and content

This series details the development of Evans' ranching enterprises. Correspondence records Evans' incisive decision-making and the strong friendships he made and maintained within the cattle industry. Particularly noteworthy is the record of Evans' successful partnership with Gus Wortham, from the early growth of their association and friendship, through to the partnership's amiable dissolution in later years. In particular, information found in subseries 3.3. Little Eva Plantation, Chopin, La., 1864-1991 (bulk: 1941-1970) highlights the importance Evans placed on cultivating the historical context of many of his ranches.
