He also was director of the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum in Santa Fe, and curator at the Amon Carter Museum in Ft. Worth. He started as a high school history teacher and later became a university professor. He is perhaps most widely acclaimed for his lectures and books—authoritative and yet easy-to-read books and catalog raisonnes on Albert Bierstadt, Charlie Russell, Frederic Remington, George Carlin, and Buffalo Bill, among others.
WordsWorth produced two books with Peter and his excellent assistant, Sylvia Huber: “Drawn to Yellowstone: Artists in America’s First National Park” and “The Best of Proctor’s West: An in-depth study of eleven of Proctor’s bronzes”
Our sympathy goes out to his wife Buzzy and their family and friends.
