Further info on R. W. Crocker from the Sharlot Hall Museum: The Ralph Wilbur Crocker Collection consists of 8 scrapbooks (1 c.f.) containing photographs, artwork, and newspaper clippings 1814-1963. The majority of the photographs are of the Crocker, Perry, and Wilbur families of Hillside, Michigan and their decendents. Most interesting in the collection is Folder 8, containing the scrapbook of Prescott, Az. in 1926 and 1927. The scrapbook contains images of Hopi reservation and Hopi Indians participating in the 1926 and 1927 Prescott Frontier Days Rodeo and also includes rare images of Tom Mix filming a movie in Prescott town, not in the Granite Dells. Also of note are the photographs of E.W. Crocker’s (Ralph Wilbur Crocker’s relative) traveling horse show, which was a circus-type troupe of horses and burros which performed a stage show across the country and in Canada and the United Kingdom. These photos are located in Folder 3.
