From the Den of the Great Custer Wolf [Photograph]


This photograph depicts two wolves (presumably offspring of the famous outlaw wolf named "The Custer Wolf") at Dr. McCleery's lobo wolf park, located along Route 6 five miles east of Kane, PA. The cropped version of this photograph is an AZO undivided postcard. The caption on the front of the card reads, "From the Den of the Great Custer Wolf ©." The back of the card reads, "Copyrighted by THE NICOLAS STUDIO, KANE, PA."

This photograph was featured in the Public Ledger (Philadelphia, PA) on February 21, 1932 which also attributed the photograph to A. A. Nicolas.

This photograph was taken between 1929 (when Dr. McCleery moved the wolf park to the Route 6 location) and 1932 (when it was featured in the Public Ledger).


The postcard version of this item is from the personal collection of Kirsten Canfield.
