least from the Depression on. Mike Perkins, son of Keys' friend, Dr. Perkins, lived often at the
ranch between 1966 and 1968. He collected data on the history of the
ranch and its environs. His papers were eventually turned over to the
monument and are housed at the headquarters. Wherever possible,
citations referring to this material have been made by author and date,
with a note indicating that the material was found in the Perkins
Papers. If no bibliographic data exist, I have used the quasi-citation, Perkins
