Lucullus V. McWhorter happened to have a chance meeting with Nez Perce War veteran, Yellow Wolf, in 1907 that eventually led to his book, Hear Me, My Chiefs! Published after his death, the book offered a complex and nuanced take on the 1877 Nez Perce War. In its archives, Washington State University has a number of McWhorter’s primary sources collected throughout his research, including oral histories, newspapers, and a range of books. Visitors can look over McWhorter's own copies of The North American Indian, his photographs of various battle sites, and images of those who participated in the war’s various military battles and skirmishes. Those with an interest in American history and Native American affairs will find the site an excellent resource.
