Miller Rodeo part II

The only thing I ever new about the Miller Rodeo as a boy is that Oklahoma Slim died in 1978 around my birthday just after I moved to Rich Hill. All the kids were talking about Oklahoma Slim dying, they said he was a famous Rodeo clown. Then in the mid-1980's I was working construction in Oklahoma people would ask me just where in Missouri I was from. I would always say midway between Kansas City and Joplin. This one man replied, "Oh Rich Hill" and come to find out he used to Rodeo with the former Lester Breckenridge. I was also happy to finally post a story by Randy Bell one of Rich Hill's most important historians.
