1886

Ned Buntline - Week 29Ned Buntline, (Edward Zane Carroll Judson), age 65, died in Stamford, NY. Sailor and writer, he wrote dime novels, some about the West*, and numerous bad plays. Publisher, rabble-rouser and a notorious prevaricator, he survived a lynching attempt in 1846 after a killing. Judson claimed acquaintance with numerous Western legends: Wild Bill Hickok+3, Bat Masterson, Bill Tilghman, Wyatt Earp+2 and Buffalo Bill among others, (he did produce a play with Bill Cody+2: Scouts of the Prairie (1882)**. Claimed to have ordered the original long barreled pistols from Colt which came to be called (in modern times) “Buntline Specials”. This is heavily debated and likely not true. Books: Love at First Sight (1849); Buffalo Bill, King of the Border Men (1869) and others. Photo: PD Sarony NY  {001}
